Kathy's Color Throw Down with The Greeting Farm

Welcome to another Color Throw Down at Lily Pad Cards.  Kathy has chosen some lovely springy colors for us this time:


We were given the chance to play with some digital Greeting Farm stamps!  Here is the image I chose; he's called Irvin!  Given that my maiden name was Irvine, and loving music, I couldn't resist him!  Here is my card using Irvin and Kathy's colors this month:


supplies: kraft, cream, and white cardstocks, Greeting Farm "Irvin Sax" digital stamp, colored pencils and markers, Papertrey Ink Vintage Picnic (sentiment), versafine onyx black ink, Heidi Grace green plaid dp, aqua satin ribbon, heart punch, aqua cardstock

I printed Irvin out on white (for his eyes), cream (for the background), and a light kraft cardstock.  I colored in his clothes, beak, feet, and saxophone on the kraft copy,  and then cut him out and glued him to the background, piecing in his eyes, and adding some punched hearts to give me more of the aqua color.

Be sure to visit Lily Pad Cards to see the other DT's creations using The Greeting Farm stamps, and then enter to win some Greeting Farm of your own!
