Good for Something

Hello Blogger Friends!

I have a card to share today created with stamps from Artistic Outpost. 

The verse is from the new set Typography!  What a great collection of verses to compliment all the Artistic Outpost stamps!
The barn scene is from the set Home.  After I stamped it with Espresso ink, I cut around the barn part.  That eliminated the cancellation stamp that's part of the stamp.  I used Distress inks to add touches of color.  I used my finger as my paint tool to add all the color so it's very rustic!  Then I stamped the boy and fence from Paris Exposition, again with Espresso ink.  Doesn't he fit in well with the barn?  I thought it worked well enough!  He's colored with Distress inks, too!  Both the barn scene and boy are mounted with foam tape.  I stamped and matted the verse and added just a touch of Distress inks.  It mounted with foam tape, too. There's a brown mat around all on a Kraft card front.  I added some brown twine across the bottom.

Thanks for stopping!  Wishing all a great Labor Day Weekend!  It's a big family weekend here.  Our community has it's celebration with carnival, antique tractor show, parade and much more!  Top that off with my DH's class reunion.  The whole family likes to eat, too!!!  Lots of cooking and fun!   Busy, busy, busy!!!
