Celebrate Today

More good advice, don't you agree?  My card today is for two challenges. The Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:  Farm Fresh, and the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #8:  Blending Techniques.
Here is the Moxie Fab Trigger for this week:

and here is my card........


I was inspired by the graphic background, texture and the simple images. I masked the window background with Frisket Film, usually used for air brushing.  I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Pumice Stone for the shading.  I stamped the Hero Arts, Stencil Art, on fabric interfacing It is not as heavy as felt and gave me the see-thru look I was going for. I have recently discovered the versatility of this lovely Hero Arts stamp set, and have been using it often.  I also added sewing machine stitching for a little more detail.  My new PTI stamp set, Friendship Jar, was also perfect for this challenge.  This set is so fun and adorable.  You will probably be seeing a lot more of this one too!

Ink:  Tim Holtz, Pumice Stone and Versafine, Habanero, Deep Lagoon
Stamps:  Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink
Dies:  Nestabilities, PTI
