The Greeting Farm- Oliver

Hello everyone!

Today I am following a trend :)) Now all over blogland and Facebook groups there has been a new trend starting!! And I just had to give it a try . Talented crafters on the Make It Crafty Facebook Group have been colouring their stamped images with no black lines....and instead using evry faint grey ones.

So I had to see if it was as hard as it looked ...I do like a challenge!!

So for my Quixotic Paperie DT card this week  I stamped an image from The Greeting Farm which I have had for ages but it has not seen any love as yet!  This one is Oliver from the 'Journey Set'. He is coloured with copics and a little amount of pencil for the sky background.  I used (as recommended by Elaine) an Adrionack Ink Pad 'Lake Mist' to get the light grey lines on the image. Once coloured it creates a really nice soft, pastel effect on the image. This is a technique I would love to try again and perfect a little more .

The papers I used are Fancy Pants 'Beach Bum' 6 x6 pad. I have given them all the distressed treatment. I have also used a Tim Holtz journalling ticket and a Tim Holtz Metal Hinge Clip.

Before I go have you checked out the fabulous and quirky new stamps from Octopode??? A few have sneaked into my basket!

Thanks for popping by today!


  1. I've been playing with that technique too - its fun but harder than you've made it look! Great card, I think the torn paper really matches the soft colouring so beautifully.

  2. Gorgeous, going to have a go myself in the future. Jane x

  3. these are `Fabulous` TFS:)

  4. Love the missing black lines the coloring looks so reel. Cool design and distressing.
