On the Farm...

Using scraps off my desk!  Yea!  Every bit of this card used CS in the ever growing pile on my desk of left over scraps that I can't bear to throw away.  Curse of the paper artists!  The Digital Tuesday challenge: "On the Farm" was to use a Digi in a farm theme.  I had a tractor stamp and two digis (one called "Our Love's Poultry in Motion" and a basket of eggs)  in my collection that seemed to fit the bill.  Both these Digis were freebies - and unfortunately I did not keep track of where I got them. (HINT: I now have a solution to this problem and I keep all Digis in separate files labeled with the name of the web site or the artist.)
I used the green DP scrap as a field with faux stitching to give it definition.  This qualifies then for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #77- Stitches.. real or faux  The tractor was stamped with Distress Ink in a color to blend into the background.  The two Digis were colored with Copics, cut out, sculpted and floated on foam tape.  Finally I used a flower punch on the remaining green scraps and added as "crops" in the foreground.
