When I first saw this stamp set in the new catalog I thought it would be great for masculine cards since we live in rural Indiana....little did I know we would be heading into such a summer for our farming families. The drought will surely affect the corn harvest though it looks like the beans have been saved by the late rains. All this to say, we truly feel blessed to have any kind of harvest coming this year.
Today's Ways to Use It challenge was to use clouds and I thought right away about the new blue that I'm really loving, Midnight Muse so I used that and my cloud template to sponge a sky strip. I stamped my tractor in Versafine Onyx and watercolored with a paintbrush and ink from the lids of Gumball Green, Garden Green, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight. I used a layout I used the other day with a Midnight base with score lines. The sentiment and all the rest were stamped onto Natural White. I added a button with denim threads. I popped the tractor image with dimensionals

Love this card. I like the placement of your tractor. I love those new colors on this card. This tractor is not the ones you see today. It's amazing how BIG they have gotten. Glad to hear the beans are atleast doing ok. tfs
