CCC #21 - Country roads, yeehaw!

This week's Challenge technique #21 from Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities has been fun. Check out the details at Studio L3, the lovely Linda will fill you in on the details. Also, go check out what Lori did with her tags, they are fabulous, totally awesome in every sense of the word!  Since this is my first attempt at the CCC it took me a few tries before I could get the result that I liked. It took me a while to get the hang of it

The background is inked with weathered wood distress ink. The farm and pick up truck stamps are from Artistic Outpost. I thought they were kind cool to use for fall. They were inked in my favorite DI aged mahogany. The small flowers are from Wendy Vecchi's Botanical Art and stamped in pine needle. Isn't this shimmer cool? It reallly turned out better than I could've hoped. The technique adds so much to the stamping. Next time I try this I'll add some embellishments, like maybe a cornstalk or a bale of hay! lol!

Thanks for stopping by today. Feel free to let me know what you think and what I could add to give it more dimension. Until later, go make something fun!
