I hope your week is progressing nicely! This is the last day of Summer! Can you believe it??? Fall starts tomorrow and I am so happy! So long Summer. . .Hello Autumn!!!!
Today is Tuesday so that means it is High Hopes Stamps challenge time! This week's challenge is "Country, Farm, etc." I couldn't wait for this one to come around because of the stamp I bought just for this challenge. It has to be one of my all time favorite images. I like it because it is cartoonish and whimsical, and just plain adorable! LOL It make me grin and snicker every time I see it. Here it is on the card I made for this challenge:
OMG is this hysterical or what???? The stamp is called "American Cowthic". I had a blast with this image! Isn't that what stamping is all about??? The entire image is colored with Ranger Distress Inks (black soot, victorian velvet, barn door, and brushed corduroy). OK, I fibbed. . .the cow bell was colored with a colored pencil because I have no yellow in the distress inks. The barn window was made by cutting strips from paper that had weathered woodgrain on it. I distressed it again with distress ink. I popped the cow's heads up with dimensionals for a little depth. The background red card stock was ran through the CB with a distressing folder to give it a red barn look. I finished the card off with red gingham ribbon for that country feel. The inside of the card says "Cows by you?" LOL It is computer generated.
I hope you get a chance to play with us this week! Head on over to the High Hopes Stamps blog to see what the Diva's did with this one and play along!
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be posting my Wednesday Evening Post tomorrow with lots more to share with you. I'm excited because it will be the first post of the Autumn season!!!! Can you tell I'm a Fall nut???? Can you tell that I'm ready for Summer to go bye-bye!?!? LOL Until tomorrow. . . .
Hugs to all of you!
