Sparkle Creations September Release Day!

Hello! Today is the day that the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps September images are available for purchase in the store! Today we are showing you the third and final image, Farming Oliver!

I paired this sweet little farmer image with some wood grain (Wanted by Cosmo Cricket) and plaid paper (Farm Fresh by October Afternoon). I colored him with Copic markers, added some grass, sponged the background sky and added some Antique Linen to the edges of my image panel. It is getting close to harvest time for my BIL and SIL, and despite the nearly non-stop rain they got hit with this summer, I am hoping that they have an abundant harvest this year! I thought the tall image would fit nicely on a long card (which I don't make that often). Since this had a masculine feel to it, I finished it off with some natural twill and brown twine. I used Mercy's sketch from last week for my layout (MTSC89). My sentiment reads Harvest Blessings (from Verve's Harvest Blessings).

All 3 images that we have peeked this week are now available in the store!
