Down on the Farm

Hi everyone! A new month starts tomorrow and a new challenge at Craft a Scene. During April our challenge theme is Down on the Farm or Ranch Scenes. Great chance to use your old barn stamps, fences, cattle, horses, cowboys, etc.

My first card:

This is a half sheet scene done on glossy cardstock. I started out with the new Stampscapes Old Barn stamp and then added other stamps to build a night farm scene. It ended up being a bit similar to a card I made last year, without me even realising it. All the stamping was done with Archival Jet Black Ink. I first applied yellow ink with a Colorbox Stylus tool, and then continued with the lighest shade of grey (Weather Vane) and adding darker and darker shades. The grassy areas were built with the Sedge Filler stamp and some stones. I love the Sedge Filler, it just magically creates a field of grass when you stamp it repeatedly.

As usual, highlights were added with a white gel pen and mist and shine by dry-brushing white pigment ink on the scene.

Thank you for looking! I hope you will join us during April!

Happy Stamping!
