Home is Where One Starts From

If you haven't heard yet, the Outlawz are having  a Western party this week!  For the Thursday Prisma and Other Mediums challenge the theme was anything goes, western optional.  Now, I'm trying to stay in the spirit of the party, so I decided to keep with the western image.  

Here I have a Barn scene from Squigglefly and the couple is an image from Digi Doodle Shop.  I colored both images with Pebbles Inc. chalk pastels.  Then I aged the pictures with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo...almost didn't even need to color with the chalk since it all turned a kind of yellow anyway. LOL  After coloring I cut out the couple and positioned on top of scene.  The flowers are from Hero Arts and are shaded with Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Inks.  The lace is also shaded using Vintage Photo Distress Ink, but it's kind of hard to tell in the photo.  Mini keys are from 7gypsies, brads are from American Crafts Elements. Sentiment is from 7gypsies and was also shaded using Vintage Photo.  All corners were rounded using a Creative Memories corner punch.

I'm pretty proud of how this card turned out.  I really wanted an old-fashioned, down-on-the-farm kind of look.  I think I'll give it to my grandpa for his birthday.
