Amish Farm

This month's Craft A Scene challenge is called Down On The Farm.  I've had this card finished for a few days, just was unable to post thanks to my migraines again.

For my card, I pulled out a couple of my favorite sets by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company called A Trip To Lancaster and Scenic Selections then got to work.  After stamping all of my images in memento tuxedo black onto Stampin Up! vanilla card stock, I pulled out my koh-i-noor pencils with blender marker to do the coloring.  Once all of my coloring was finished, I added some additional grass from Scenic Selections stamped in Tim Holtz forest moss distress ink making sure some of the images overlapped each other for added dimension.  Then I pulled out my stipple brushes and added some garden green and brushed corduroy inks along the edges before adding some tumbled glass ink for the clouds and sky.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great week.
