On My Farm!

I hope you all are doing well and taking advantage of the warmer weather and working in those gardens! Here is a tag I had fun with using the Seed Packets Background, Harvest and Grunge Elements.
Don't you just love the vintage feel of these new stamps? All of the images were stamped using Black Archival and inked with Antique Linen, Old Paper and Gathered Twigs. I cut apart the seed packets to make a little collage of images and spritzed on a bit of water and Walnut Stain. The young lad background was inked over and I colored his suspenders using Faded Denim with a water brush and the tie was dyed the same.

Finished off with a sentiment from Harvest which was cut apart. Love that sentiment! The black tag background used stamps from Grunge Elements that were covered with Buttermilk paint.

Thank you for visiting today and have a great weekend. As a quick update, we are still in the process of a large move and it is not an easy task at all with packing, setting up a new house, getting an older house in order and then the 2,300 mile trip across county in a U-haul pulling a vehichle and we get to do that adventure one more time. Oh and I have stories to tell and will at a later time. Actually it is much more involved than we ever thought, so again I ask you to stick with me over the next month. I sure hope by the end of May we are done with at least the moving part and then will just have to sell the house in California!

A Gardening We Will Go!

Oh happy days the weather has warmed and I would love to share with you a card using images from Seed Packet, Harvest and Grunge Elements! Oh and this is a "Reminder" Blog Hop, so be sure to visit the rest of the DT for awesomeness and see what they whipped up for you from the new release.

The Seed Packet is perfect just the way it is and I had such a great time with it that it was hard to cover, so I kept it simple and used a great sentiment from Harvest.
The sentiment was stamped and inked over with Antique Linen. The background image was stamped in Black Archival and then a variety of markers were used to watercolor the veggies and then inked over with Antique Linen and Old Paper. The edges were shaded using Walnut Stain and Black Soot. Oh and how I love the Grunge Elements dotty stamp which was inked up with Old Paper and stamped at random.

Thank you for stopping by today for the Artistic Outpost Blog Hop showing off that March New Release fabulousness. We are back to CA for a couple of weeks and then will make another adventure across the country and boy it can be quite the adventure. Bare with me as soon this move will be complete! Have a great day!
