Farm Fresh Friday with The Greeting Farm

Happy Friday blogland! I apologize for the serious lack of posts but I've been feeling a bit under the weather while also having two sick babies as well so things have been a bit crazy around my house. With my girls finally back to their happy healthy selves, I've finally started to rest and recover. But enough about me, hope you guys had a great week and what better way to end the week than to kick off another Farm Fresh Friday challenge with The Greeting Farm? This week's challenge is Get Wordy, meaning just that, you add a sentiment to your card or project! Since this was a nice simple theme I thought I'd make a nice simple card using one of my super secret stamp club cuties, #9 Day Out Anya

SSSC #9 Day Out Anya

Since it seems to be the latest trend, since my watercoloring has been a little neglected, and since it looked so stinkin' fun, I tried my hand at making my own water colored background. Guess what, super easy and I loved it! I used my twinkling H2O watercolor paints and the background came out super shimmery oh I wish you guys could see the shimmer! And once it dried I mounted it to a piece of Bazzill heavyweight card shoppe cardstock, stamped my sentiment and called it done....But since it looked so plain, I colored up the adorable Day Out Anya with my copics, fussy cut her out and adhered her to my card and she fit in perfectly! Because I wanted the background to be the focus I didn't add any extra embellishments, just a bit of wink of stella to her outfit. I hope this inspires you guys to try out making your own watercolor backgrounds. Now head on over to The Greeting Farm to find out the winner of last week's challenge and see what those amazing teamies of mine have come up with. Don't forget to link up your creations for a chance to win a fabulous prize and the chance to have your card featured on Wow'd me Wednsday at The Greeting Farm, see you guys soon, I'm getting looks from hubby that tell me "step away from the computer and get back to bed, sick person" gotta love him ;)



  1. This is so adorable Krys!!! So funny because I actually created my own background for my latest card this week too! Great minds think alike! :) I really love your background and still need to try the Twinkly H20's. I also love that image and missed that SSC so hoping it is at the store soon! Hope you have a great weekend Krys!
