Celebrating FRAGMENTS from the barnyard!

In my continued celebration of FRAGMENTS from the Tim Holtz "ideology" line and my second try at the inspirational CPS sketch challenge, here's my offering for this weeks challange based on the CPS111 sketch:



(OMG! I actually inserted the sketch! I'm really growing up! tee hee)



"With an oink-oink here... and a moo-moo there... I love to use T!m's fragments... EVERYWHERE! "


Card stock - S/U!
Paisley background stamp S/U!
All colored ink - S/U! (Animals and barn were colored by using a small pool of ink from the lid of the pads and then applied with a small watercolor brush)
Staz-on (Black)
Flower, ribbon and rhinestone brad - S/U!
Barn and livestock stamps - Studio g
Sentiment - Hero Arts

There! THAT was fun! Signing off from my own little barnyard... Have a CRAFTY day!

E-i-e-i-oooooh! You made those little farm animals sing! Great application of the sketch and I love how the fragments give the card a more dynamic 3-d look. Your watercolor effect is luscious too!

Oh wow is that adorable! I so love what you did with that CPS sketch and those images are truly the cutest! I so get what you mean by the "growing up" part! I get excited when I figure out something new too.

What homespun, down on the farm cuteness! Love the stamped background and your watercoloring looks So great! (didn't even realize it Was watercoloring, until I started reading!) Congrats on making it back to CPS two weeks in a row! (I have the sketch printed off, but with my inlaws coming....well, we'll see!) :>
