Farm Life!

This is another one of those sets that I really, really wanted when the new catty came out, but put off buying. Watercoloring the animals was the easy part -- the hard part was trying to figure out how to compose the rest of the card. I think that I really need to get the Woodgrain background stamp -- that would go beautifully with this set. I'm really missing Print Pattern and Weathered, so I pulled them out and inked them up. I really wanted to try to watercolor the sheep using White craft ink on Confetti Cream cardstock. I like how it came out!

Paper: Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, Confetti Cream

Ink: Craft ink: White, Ruby Red. Classic inks: Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, Sahara Sand, Really Rust, Summer Sun, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose

Wowser -- I missed this one!! This is such a "you" card, beautiful watercoloring as usual. I love the colo combo you used, and of course, you know I love those background stamps.
