This week over at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog, we are Gettin' Sentimental for Farm Fresh Friday. That's right! Easy peasy! :) Use any sentiments you want (along with your TGF stamp) and show us what you come up with.
I don't think I can make a card without adding some kind of sentiment on it. Well, I sure went all out with this one. I wanted to try something totally out of my realm . . . adding lots of sentiments all in the same theme and trying to not add as many embellishments so that the sentiments would stand out.
Here's my card. I used Anya from the Miss Anya Dressy. She's stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics on Kraft. Her apron and stockings were colored using Prismacolor pencils. Yeah, yeah, I need practice. Anyway, I stamped most of the sentiments in Rich Cocoa except for the "oh so Thankful" and "Gracias". They are sentiments from the Spotlight Kit and Roll Call Kit.
The edges were painted with Distress Crackle Paint - Vintage Photo. It was the first time I've used this color. Not sure if it gave the effect that I wanted, but gotta try right? I also added a little tag at the top of the card . . . yep, with another sentiment on it! :)
Lastly, here's a close up of Miss Anya Dressy. I just realized that I forgot to add pearls to her shoes! YIKES! Well, didn't I say I wanted to keep this card sorta free from embellies?
The FFF challenges runs until Thursday, entries are due by 12 PM CST. The winner will receive a free single TGF stamp of choice! Please upload your challenge cards to TGF Galleria> Farm Fresh Challenges 2011> Farm Fresh Fridays 2011> Sentimental.
That's it for me today. I hope y'all will have a nice weekend. Ta-ta and see you back here next week!
