...A "Cheeky" Farm Fresh Friday

It's Farm Fresh Friday time again at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week's challenge is brought to you by our very own, Randi Wall...create a vintage grunge card. We are also showcasing the new "Cheeky" line of stamps coming out! Allow me to introduce "Cheeky Shooter"...is she not exquisite?!? I am just in love with this new stamp line, and I can't wait to see what's coming next! I stamped and watercolored the image, then paired it up with some patterned papers from the Early Bird collection by Cosmo Cricket. I stamped the background of the focal panel with one of the sentiments from the "Anya Says" set, then sponged the inner edges of the same panel. A little Rope Twine and paper piercing completed the card.

Now let's see what the rest of the design team members have up their sleeves for today's challenge:

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a creation for Crazy 4 Challenges! Until then...

Supplies
Stamps: Cheeky Shooter, Anya Says (The Greeting Farm)
Papers: kraft, watercolor, Early Bird DP (Cosmo Cricket)
Inks: black, sand, blush, caramel, cocoa, coral, riding hood, saffron, summer, red, not quite navy, gray
Accessories: mat pack, paper piercer, rope twine, nesties, big shot, sponge dauber, circle punch, distressing tool, clear ep, heat gun, aquapainter, dimensionals
