TGF Preview's Day 2- Spotchy Background

"Welcome back for our 2nd day of previews for The Greeting Farm's MAY Release! No, that's not your eyes and you don't need to adjust your computer screen. You are DEFINITELY seein' somethin' SPLOTCHY on the Farm!

We are trying something NEW this month...and it's the FIRST 'background' stamp that TGF has ever released. If all goes well, we are hoping to coordinate this set with something SUPER FRESH and NEW coming this stay TUNED! For now, I introduce you to our "SPLOTCHY BACKGROUND stamp set", which will be released on May 1st along with Hoo Loves You and the stamps we have yet to show you (wink wink ;)

For my card tonight, I stamped my new Splotchy Background with Taken With Teal ink on GP white. I then stamped my Anya from the Rain, Snow, Shine set on an X-Press It blending card, and colored her with my Copics. I used DP from Lilybee Designs, and MME. My sentiment is from the TGF Butterfly Wishes set, and I used a ribbon slide die to cut it out. My ribbon is from SU, and my brads are from Michael's.

Be sure to visit the TGF Blog and also the Farm Fresh Challenge blog as we are excited to have some of our challenge DT girls playing along with Farmer previews today, and of COURSE there just might be a set laying around to GIVE AWAY! All the deets are on the TGF Blog-see you there!"

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my Fred Bear on an X-Press It Blending Card. I then colored him with my Copics. It was then layered with Jelly Bean Green, Hot Fudge, and Fossil card stock. My ribbon and buttons are old, but from MFT, and I purchased my Twine there as well. I used the Open Scalloped Die-namics for my border, and the Fishtail Banner Die-namics, as well. My paper is from Basic Grey, the Archaic line.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, but I stamped the rest of the sentiment, and one of the CUTE little teepee's!!!

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and remember to head on over to Kim's blog for a full list of designer participating today!!
