...Farm Fresh Color Challenge & Preview


It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week we have...A Color Challenge. Not only do we have a challenge, but we also have a preview of the new set being released on April 1st designed by Marina Neira called "Get Well". I stamped the image in Black Ink, then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers. I paired the image with some patterned papers from the Love Me Do paper pack by My Mind's Eye. I added some stitching, a ribbon, and some Black Rhinestones to complete the card.

I loved this challenge so much that I decided to create another card using one of Marina's images (this one is a digi) called "Laurie With Present".
Now let's see what the Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's sketch:
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I'll see you again tomorrow with a card for the C4C challenge. Until then...

What a lovely card and the "get well" image is so sweet!
But still I just fell in love with the 2nd card - it's amazing! I adore the simple touch but the lay out is the real killer for me. Great job!
