Farmyard friends.



Week 3 of the On the Farm Challenges over at Gingersnap Creations.
The inspiration for this week is to come from 'Livestock'.  GC 126

Phew! I thought when I saw this theme, a little panic, what did I have that would suit this challenge,  get the thinking cap on.
Thankgoodness the  trusty Artistic Outpost stamps could be used again , an embossing folder of a tree. Raid the kitchen cupboard  for some seeds to feed the pigs and hens.
Add a few  grasses and trimmings, then colour and shade with watercolours and chalk.
So here is my result, a peaceful farm scene, with happy animals, free to roam.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
