Happy Father's Day Dad! On the Farm!!!


I made this card for my Dad. I used a retired Stampin Up set name On the Farm.
My Dad lives out of town and has nicknamed his homestead "The Ranch". I thought this best fits his lifestyle!

I again fashioned this scene after Michelle B's technique of piecing a scene. I just love this effect!

Each element is stamped, colored and mounted individually. The only thing that bugs me about this set is that is not proportional...look how big that hog is compared to the farmer...LOL I would hate to get in that piggy's pathway!

I punched the ground and fence and added this on to the sponged sky. I then used my nesties to cut out my squares (which really simplifies this process). I mounted the two squares on some red and added them back into the "scene".

I used the SU! retired cloud template for sponging the sky.

-----------------------------------

Stamps: On The Farm (retired SU!), Sentiment from H & M Stamps

Cardstock: DP from SU! scrapbook kit, Real Red, Neenah white

Ink: Tuxedo black, copics

Misc: Martha Stewart halloween fence punch, nesties, dimensionals, SU cloud and sponge

Pin It!

This is adorable! It's perfect for your dad, too. I giggled when I read your comment about the proportion of the hog. hehe He is definitely thriving. lol

Hi Sue! I *LOVE* that you used DP for the ground. What a time saver (vs. inking it all)! I've been thinking of doing that too but....I'm DP challenged!
