…Farm Fresh Color Challenge

Happy Friday, everyone!  This week over at The Greeting Farm Blog we have a new challenge…a Color Challenge!  I decided to use the Anya image from the new “Sunshine Kit”.  I stamped the image in Black Ink, then colored her with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the colored focal panel with some patterned papers from October Afternoon’s Fly A Kite paper pad, and accented each layer with a Hawaiian Shores Cardstock mat.  I also added a small flower to her hair using the Trio Flower Punch and a Silver Brad.  After adding some Saddle-Stitched Ribbon, Paper Piercing, and loads of Dimensionals the card was complete.  So whatcha think?  :)

Now let's see what the other Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the TGF Blog for the official challenge rules and to play along with us!  I'll see you back here Sunday with Mercy’s Magnificent Musings for this week!  Until then...

How adorable. Could you tell me how you got her hair to stick out over the cut circle. I've been dying to learn that technique.
Thanks a million,
