High Hopes Challenge #23 ~ Buttons Challenge+ March POTM

Old Macdonal had a farm,eya eya o.....Good evening/morning everyone!!! Phew....I thought I can't finish this card!! I took forever to finish it....LOL...this was really a challenge for me, specially I need to make the scene background for the very first time.All are difficult for me as I need to color the stamped images first them assembled into a piece of paper that I have made the cloud and the field. Here are the steps:

A.For the stamped images:
I stamped the High Hopes Farm theme stamps with Tsukineko Memento Ink onto a white cardstock.Colored with Copic Ciao Markers.Cut it out after finished coloring.

B.For the scene background:
(Cloud)-I hand cut a picture of cloud like the picture below. On a white scrap paper, I inked the cloud with Ranger Broken China distress ink, then colored the rest, did the same to make several "cloud".

(Field)-I sponged some Ranger Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint on the white cardstock.

C. I glued the backyard background stamped images on the "ready-made scene background cardstock", then I used 3 D foam pad to glue the farmer and pink stamped images that I colored before.

D. I used blue cardstock to mat the background. I stapled the gingham ribbon on the blue cardstock too. Then I stapled two gingham ribbons on the upper right hand side.

E. Sentiment tag with button
I had this idea when I don't know where to put the sentiment:-)) I used raffia to go through the stapled gingham ribbon and tied it on the stamped sentiment and I went through the raffie into the button, lastly I glued the raffie with crystal laquer. I just used a string of raffia to make all this.

Lastly I glued the blue cardstock on the brown cardstock and glued the buttons with crsytal laquer too.

I hope you like my card as I do too, don't forget to go to High Hopes Challenge blog to view other DT's amazed designs, please join us too if you love too:-))
