SCRSC # 64 with Farmer Oliver.

Hello peeps!

It is time for another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge --- # 64. Today's challenge is a sketch:



And here's what I did:

I over-tilted a bit, and so Farmer Oliver looks like he's gonna tip over... LOL! Doesn't it look like a great day at the farm? The sky is blue and there are lots of fluffy clouds. The grass is green and the crop is abundant :). He just has to watch out for those darn crows!!

I hadn't been lucky with the clouds before. Amy had blogged about a tutorial on how to do this, but my clouds never even looked like 1/10th of hers, LOL. I'd used Tim Holtz distressed ink like recommended but I think I have a very heavy hand because they never looked right. I think it's also because I didn't have the correct type of sponge. For this card, I used a metallic rub-on tint and it worked much better. (I also did it with a paper towel).

Hope you all play along! You must use a Sparkle Creations image, and upload to the SCRS Photo Gallery. The deadline is October 16th at 9 pm PST. The winner will be picked randomnly and get a free stamp!
