A Homegrown Thinking of You


Hello everyone,
There is a new Challenge over at SumMore Fun and we would love to have you join us.  Here is my take on the inspiration "Mood" Board.  
I wanted to make a scene with the Homegrown (10287-Z) clear stamp set from Raisin Boat the minute I saw it.  One of the things I love when visiting family in Iowa are the beautiful sunsets and I tried to recreate that in this scene.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and stamped the barn, I then masked it off and used Distress Oxides in Faded Lilac, Seedless Preserves and Faded Jeans for the sky and Evergreen Bough for the yard.  I then spritzed some clean water and dabbed it off for some added interest.  I then took two of the cows from the set and using Versafine Ink in Black Onyx stamped them and then heat set with clear embossing powder and then masked off the top cow.  Then using the bean field stamp from the set I stamped behind the barn using a dark green ink from my crafty stash, when it dried it dried back quite a bit but I really like how it turned out.  When that was all done I removed my masks and colored the barn using Prismacolor Pencils in reds and grays and then stamped the Thinking of You sentiment at the bottom and some grass in dark green all over the bottom, the grass stamps are also in the Homegrown set.  I popped my finished panel onto an A2 sized Kraft Card Base with some heavy duty double sided tape and plan to send to family back home.  See you all soon!

I sure hope you will come join us and play along.  Thanks for stopping by and I will see you all again soon!
