Time for Farm Fresh Friday

FFF Sketch Ch.Hello My Friends and Happy Friday! Today we have a new challenge at The Greeting Farm. This week it is a sketch by very talented Jessica. Would you like to play with us? Just make a card following the sketch and upload it to TGF Gallery. So easy and so much fun!

Here is how I was inspired; I flipped the sketch horizontally,  put Memento ink on very cute Ian Laddie stamp, colored him with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, and cut him out… You can’t really see on the picture but I did some weaving on his hat using a very narrow strip of the brown paper. The same weaving was done on the background of the card. The papers are from Basic Grey (gift from my friend Anna), and can you believe I did a little bit of sponging here. A panel with a sentiment (stamp from SU, also a gift from Anna :))  was created by using different distress inks. Not only sponging by I drew a faux grid, really wanted to participate at Splitcoaststampers Trying a New Technique Challenge (TLC229).

Hope you liked this card as much I liked to create it! Thank you for stopping by today and your very kind comments,

    Totally brilliant! I LOVE how you’ve colored up Laddie and think the little border you’ve left around the cutout is perfect to make him pop off the page. I LOVE your cards!!

    Какой шебутной пацан!! 🙂 Лен, так охота иной раз со всех сторон поразглядывать твои открытки! Сейчас вот полное ощущение, что все-все объемное)) И думаю,что я не ошибусь, если скажу,что все детальки (в том числе и фоновые листы) посажены на вспененный скотч.. 😉

    Oooh! This is so fabulously colored and how brilliant are you with the weaving? I had to open it up to get a zoomed in view so that I could tell what weaving you did and it is such a great element.

  27. Oh, goodness, your weaving and grid are so cool! I wouldn’t have guessed you drew the grid yourself. Your papers are a great background for Ian Laddie! You always do such beautiful coloring, too, Elena.
