Gigi McKellips :: Gears Grinding?


Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I have a card to share with you today. I used one of the new sentiment stamp sets on this card called Made On Planet Earth. I thought this would also be a perfect sentiment to go with the cute Funny Farm tractor. I LOVE this tractor stamp, it is just TOO CUTE!



I also finished the inside too!



I paper pieced the tractor/boy and did some inking on him. I also used a Versa Mark pen to color in every other line of the tractor wheels. Using the Versa Mark pen is a great alternative if you want to highlight something because it usually only comes out a shade darker than the paper you color it onto. After the tractor was done, I mounted him to a rectangle mat. I rounded the corners, inked the edges for the sky, and added a piece of green matching paper for the bottom.
I stamped the cloud and sentiment and cut it out. I also stamped the sentiment at the bottom and added some dots with a black pen to lead you to the inside of the card where the rest of the sentiment is. The inside I finished as well with the rest of the sentiment and another piece of matching paper. 
I hope you all like my card and thank for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
