Down the farm, in vintage style...

Well hey there bloggers,
Here I am today with another offering and this time the theme was down on the farm over at gingersnaps here , now this struck some fear in me, as I really didn't have anything to suit...I stuck to my favourite colours of distress inks for vintage feel cards and a stamp from eBay..
So here she is :

I started in my usual fashion of doing two halves for my background.
The left hand side was on card coloured in tea dye and gathered twigs DI, then stamped over with script, Tim one...an absolute favourite!
The right hand side was card coloured in antique linen, then spritzed with tattered angels glimmer mists in creme de chocolat, when dry I then edged in gathered twigs DI.
Right down the left hand edge is my some Tim tissue wrap...I LOVE THIS!!!! I coloured this with picket fence distress stain and then when dry gathered twigs DI.
The main panel is made by colouring card with DI, spritzing with water and dabbing off , drying and then the image stamped on.
The panel behind the image is some canvas off a roll, torn and coloured with DI.
To complete I added lace, a sentiment and a flower made from plaited paper string.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
