Farmin' at the Hambo Hoedown

This week at the Hambo Hoedown, we got to use this fun Bear Farmer Digital stamp from Hambo Stamps!  I decided to break out my Prismacolor Pencils and color him up on kraft paper instead of using my usual Copic markers.  I'm not as savvy with the pencils, but I am getting better.  I especially love the look of the pencils on the kraft paper and thought this image would work well colored this way. 

To play on the sentiment of "sewing what you rip," I decided to "rip" some paper to form the turned soil at the bottom of the card.  If I could have unearthed my sewing machine, I would have done some sewing on the strips as well, but I have been doing some re-organizing in my craft room and it is currently buried in my closet.  Why does it have to get messier before it gets better?

Anyway, hope you will join in with the fun at the Hambo Hoedown this week.  You will definitely have to check out the other samples done by the Bacon Bits. 

I have had a snorting good time being a Guest Designer this month.  Maybe they will ask me back again sometime!

I love this Melissa! I recently played around with the color on kraft and it isn't as easy as it looks - yours turned out incredible! It has been so much fun having you Hoedown with us this month - thanks for all of the inspiration~
