As you’ve probably realised by now, I love joining challenges that, well, challenge me.
I’ve never joined any Double D challenges before, but this one caught my eye. Down on the Farm was a real challenge for me, and so far out of my comfort zone it isn’t funny, but I think I did okay.
I’ve used a few different mediums on this card: inks, Copics, and watercolours. The die is Rusty Old Ute from Ultimate Crafts, and all the stamps are freebies from a magazine.
Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
It looks fabulous Cheryl, and I love how you grounded it with the under shaddows too!

Thanks so much, Karen.
Well we are SO HAPPY you have found our challenge blog and joined in Cheryl! This is fabulous! Wonderful composition and I too love how you nestled this old truck into the landscape. Growing up, it seemed every family farm had an old truck stashed away somewhere! Great interpretation of our board! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Down on the Farm’ challenge! We hope you’ll come back often.

Thanks so much, Darlene! I’m sure I’ll visit and join in often. I do love a challenge!
I was born in the country, but moved to the city when I was still a toddler. We have lots of family in the country, and it seems whenever (or whoever) I visited, there was also a rusty old truck there.
This is what jumped out at me when I saw that picture board!
Did you emboss flowers and then colour with copies. Looks great hope you win challenge.
Perfect card for farm living and I love how you colored the old pickup truck!
Thanks Vicki. Yes, I heat embossed with white, but wasn’t happy as the images didn’t show very well at all.
So I went over them with Copics. Not perfect, but certainly better.
Thanks so much Verna! I endeavoured to make the truck look rusty. I hope I succeeded!
