I'm closing in on the end of my weekend and I've got a card to post for a couple of current challenges. This uses the sketch at MFT Stamps and the "farm" theme at CASology. I'm also linking to the challenge at The Male Room (Little Boys) and the Favourite Things challenge at Shopping our Stash. My favourite things are, without a doubt, My Favorite Things stamps and dies 😄
I created a wee farm scene on my stitched tag, using Watercolor Wash patterned paper. Oh how I love that paper - it's perfect when you don't want to use plain cardstock but you also don't want to use a busy pattern that detracts from the focal point.
I stamped, colored and die-cut the cow and put him (her!) aside so I could create the background. I die-cut the tag from white cardstock and then from the blue and green patterned paper. I also cut the green piece with the hill die from the Spring Scene Builder die set, and some clouds with the pale blue patterned paper. There is no brown in the paper pack so I used Hot Fudge cardstock for the fence.
I arranged the elements onto the tag and adhered them in place. I added some "grass" along the bottom before adding the cow. I was originally going to add a sentiment strip under the fence, but thought it would look too crowded, so added the sentiment along the bottom, which doesn't strictly follow the sketch, but hopefully it's allowed 😄
Thanks so much for visiting!
