My youngest brother celebrated his birthday this week and this is his card. He and his wife recently moved to an old farm that had belonged to family friends. They have been very busy renovating and now they are building a barn! So, this CTMH stamp seemed very suitable for this year's card. I used a page from an old dictionary for the background.
If you look closely, you might see that the word "farm" is defined on this page. I just LOVE using upcycled stuff on my cards and projects.
I played around with my Tim Holtz Distress stains for the background of this one. I swiped them onto watercolour page, misted, then blended with my finger.
