Down at the Farm

Hello Y'all,

Yes, it's still October! Today I will be playing along with Shopping your Stash, Hand Stamped Sentiments and The Card Concept. This card surprised even me! So here we are, my card for today, enjoy!

The image on this card was created using two stamps. The sunflower stamp is from Stampendous and the barn is from Inkadinkado (see below). Both stamps worked beautifully to create this peaceful scene.
Image result for sunflower ladybug stamp

The card was colored using Distress Oxide and traditional Distress Ink pad with an aqua pen.
I took color directly from the ink pad to the aqua pen and then to the 140lb watercolor paper.
This medium was easy to control and just downright fun!
A detailed shot featuring the sunflower and its visitor, the ladybug is a perfect companion to the old barn set. These two images by two different companies work together seamlessly to create a wonderful rural scene.
 Challenges Entered:
The Card Concept: #99- Sunflower Serenade
Hand Stamped Sentiments: Challenge #300- Inspiration Photo
Shopping our Stash: #375- Giving Thanks

Okay, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.
