Out in the Field

This is another card featuring the new Oxford Impressions Country Girl sheet. Did I mention there are 18 images and phrases?! It's a great deal!!

Card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"

I started this one with a previously-made sheet of Water Color Distress background paper (see TechniqueJunkies Feb 07 issue) I believe I used Tea Dye and Peeled Paint on a cream cardstock.

I stamped the tractor in Staz-On Timber Brown, masked the tire with a Post-It note, and then stamped the wheat in Peeled Paint. I used a Tim Holtz Distressing Tool to rough up the edges and let the cream cs show a bit.

I stamped the Chicks ad block on a couple scraps of cream cs in third generation Timber Brown, tore them into long triangles, and edged them with Distress Antique Linen. I stamped Farm Fresh in Timber Brown on cream cs and edged the panel directly from the Peeled Paint ink pad.

To put it all together, I layered the main panel to a dark brown panel, wrapped the word triangles around and glued on reverse, and put an antiqued copper brad and flower medallion (Decorative Details) over one. I adhered the farm fresh panel and tacked a decorative antiqued copper picture hanger wrapped with brown gingham ribbon (Offray Nice & Narrow from Joann's) on it using an antiqued copper brad.

I used Timber Brown in second generation to stamp various elements (chicken wire, food grade circle label, wheat, Chicks ad and flower) from the sheet on the rust cardfront. I adhered the caramel cs over this, and the rest on top of that.

Thanks for looking!
