20 September 2016

Harvest is finally over!

Oh my, yes I am finally back in my studio - it is amazing how quickly you get 'rusty' and I admit it has taken me a while to get my hands communicating with my brain again...........but I think I'm just about there!!

Now, I decided as we've been uber busy down on the farm that I'd keep up the theme with an adorable stamp set - The Whole Herd by My Favourite Things.

It also gave me the opportunity to jump right in and stretch those creative fingers that have spent all of August and early September making sandwiches, cooking and delivering dinners out to the men in the fields, oh and I fitted in making a birthday cake too (our son turned 21!)

So here is my entry for My Favourite Things - Card Design Superstar Contest - 2016!!














Have you spotted Ruby, the pesky chicken, who was intent on appearing in every photo! Myrtle the cow got the better of her though.......

















     








Inside the card:

Oh look, Ruby is such a cheeky little chicken and wanted to show off the eggs she laid!!














As ny on always these days I chose to use the 'no lines technique' - for those who are new to this, or even my blog........(hello there and welcome) I stamped my images with Memento Angel Pink (couldn't get hold of MFT Hybrid ink in Pink Lemonade) which is pale enough to almost disappear as you add your Copic ink, giving you a much softer, hand drawn look.

Here is a Copic list.......as usual I used quite a few!
