Time for another challenge

I hadn't been planning on posting today but an email arrived this morning that had my creative juices going and I couldn't wait to share this with you.

The email was a note about the latest Global Design Project blog challenge and this was one I didn't want to miss.

This week the challenge #GDP007 is a farm theme. Please click on the picture below to visit the challenge page and see the design teams projects.

I don't have any particular farm/animal themed stamps, but do have something that I thought would be suitable. Namely, the Happy Scenes stamp set. I paired (pardon the pun) the stamp set with the pair of wellington boots that are in the Gift from the Garden stamp set.

I made the door by extending the window frame from the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies. The scene was stamped using Basic Black Archival Ink and was coloured using both Blender Pens and Aqua Painters.

The door handle was made using the Cupcake Builder punch and some scrap Silver Foil Sheet.

The wall is a sheet from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack. And, the floor is a piece of scrap from the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper.

I popped the wellies up on dimensionals to give a little bit more depth to the scene.

I hope you like the card, and please feel free to leave a comment. If you would like more information about the Stampin' Up! products used, details are as follows:
