The Country Life...........
I'm sharing a make with you this morning that I have made for a friends birthday and yes...... he is a farmer!!!!!! (It just had to have a tractor on it!!!!).
I just love this stamp set by Sheena Douglass (The Country Life set).
I have started with a square of Sheena Stamping card and I used stencil tape to mark off the area in which I wanted to work (to leave a nice clean top and bottom of card).
First thing was to stamp that lovely tractor in black archival ink. I didn't mask it as I didn't feel that I needed to. I then put in those hills at the back with some green Momento ink and then a blue adirondack applied with a nice soft brush for the sky.
I then took my time painting in the tractor with diluted Spectrum Noir Aqua Pens.
Now, Philip won't mind me saying this but he's not the tidiest farmer and so I wanted this tractor to look like it was an old one, just left in the yard like a lot of his old engines are!!!!!!! So I have stamped flowers and weeds all around it looking like they are growing through it!!!! He'll know what I've done!!!!!
Finished by stamping Happy Birthday and The Country Life underneath.
I think he'll like this!
Thanks for stopping by today,
I would like to enter this in to the My Time To Craft Challenge of "Down on the Farm":-
