Inky Chicks - Down On The Farm

Good evening everyone!

So on this dark Tuesday evening I'm here to share my Inky Chicks DT card with you, and the theme this week is Down On The Farm.  I struggled at first with the theme but then I remember I had this gorgeous stamp from Sugar Nellie called Goosey Gander. I decided to keep the colour scheme simple - blue, white and yellow and on a DL card too. The stamp from Sugar Nellie is available from Funkykits in both rubber and as a digital download.


Here's What I did
The card base is a scalloped edged DL card. I matted some gingham paper onto blue cardstock and rounded  off the corners, this was then added to the card base. The digital image was printed onto my Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic pens. I inked up the edges of the finished image with some distressing ink, and then stamped a few cross stitched hearts in the background. I cut to size a piece of blue card and added a pretty edge using a Martha Stewart punch. My completed topper was then added to the card along with some complimentary ribbon. To finish off I added some flowers and a few leaves.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: Goosey Gander by Sugar Nellie @ Funkykits, Inkydoodles 'Country Checks' 
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Neenah, Gingham Paper (Old stock so not sure where from), Blue CS
Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E02 / Hair - E000, E15, E21, E25, E29, E31 / Pinafore, Tights & Scrunchie - B000, B00, B02, B02 / Blouse, Shoes, Goose Bill & Feet - Y000, Y00, Y02, Y35 /  Ground - W0, W1, W2, W5 /  Goose - C1, C2, C3 
Other: Distressing Ink, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Gem

So why not drop by the Inky Chicks Challenge blog, and check out what my fab Design Team girlies have made to inspire you. So come on why not join in with the fun and enter your card/project into our 'Down On The Farm' challenge this week..

This week's sponsor and prize is from Creashop Duymelot
I look forward to seeing what you create.
On another note - you would have normally seen my Digi Queen card today for Polkadoodles, but I stepped down from their Design Team early last week due to other commitments both personal and crafty.  
Furthermore, the Digi Queen DT is sadly no longer in operation as of a few days ago. Thankfully the two are not related. I want to take this opportunity to wish Nikky and the Polkadoodles DT continued success and look forward to seeing their makes.
