TGF Critter Crew Blog Hop!

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Good Morning Farm Lovers!

It's finally release day over at The Greeting Farm and as always, Marie and Jess have a few surprises up their sleeves!! There are TWO HUGE blog hops going on today and you, my friends, get to reap the rewards!

The Critter Crew gals are hosting a short and sweet hop showcasing the three digi stamps being released today by designer, Marina Neira! You can start the hop over at the creative blog of Amber Hight's, and once you're done hopping with us, head over to the Club Anya & Friends blog and skip along with them! One lucky commenter from the Critter hop will win ALL THREE digi stamps and on the CA&F hop, one random commenter will win all three Creepy rubber stamp releases!! And along the way, you just might find a drop of inspiration or two. ;)

Sailor Seal is used to blue hues, but I'm a duck out of the water when it comes to this color! He's the newest digital stamp added to The Greeting Farm's Critter Collection and the very first aquatic animal too! I borrowed this week's Card Posititioning System's sketch for my layout which explains why I broke up the sentiment into 9 pieces and spaced them out like I did. As per usual, I colored up the image with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. The only color I added to the seal was some Going Gray by SU in the shadow areas and his scarf was colored with Morning Marigold (with just a smidgen of Really Rust for the shadows).

Your next stop along the way is the fabulous Shaela Odd's blog!! And if you get lost, here's the full list of all the blogs to hit up today!

Great idea with the sentiment down the side!

My Scrap Diary said...

The sentiment placing works great with this card. It balances out with the seal. And the seal looks pretty the color that it is.
Thanks for the inspiration. I might use this sketch. I really do like it.
