Last Minute eMail Entry

Hi Everyone,

It is Friday afternoon just before our Down on the Farm challenge closes and I just received an email entry from our friend Dawn Rogers.

Dawn wrote:

I took inspiration from a Michelle Zindorf tutorial for this (Rooster Crows – Tutorial #563) and adapted it to the materials I had.  The rooster stamp is from Clarity; the grasses are Lavinia and Art Impressions; and the fence is from Lindsay Mason (this wasn't a silhouette stamp, so I had to colour it in to make it fit the scene).

For my second entry, "Old MacDonald Had a Farm", I had stamped and water-coloured the three images, using Hobbyart stamps, at the beginning of the month, but couldn't decide how to mount them.  I've ended up rushing this tonight, so it's a bit rough & ready, but I wanted to share the stamped images with you so I hope you'll overlook the faults in the layout and embellishments 

I always enjoy having a go at your Challenges, and also browsing through the many entries and design team offerings, and I generally find some inspiration or useful tips.

Thanks Dawn!

I will be back on Sunday with our winners and next challenge theme.
