Where's Dorothy?

As a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz, I can't help but think of it when I see this scarecrow from the new Lizzie Anne Designs set, Happy Harvest!! I actually made this as a multi-challenge card for the DTGD challenges over at SCS.

I tried to distress this quite a bit, and I think next time I use it...I will use a different approach. I also used my troubled Aqua Painter again, and of course it gave me fits. I hope you like it anyhow!!

Ink: Palette Noir, Antique Linen (Ranger), Stampin' Write markers in various colors

I think it's wonderful. No one would ever know you had trouble with the aqua-painter. It looks perfect. What a cute set. I did a fall card today, just on a lark. Aren't they fun!? Yours is adorable!

Rose Ann the coloring/painting with your aqua painter looks wonderful! Hey if you get a new one could you send this one my way... I wish for this kind of trouble! lol

Leslie Miller said...

Ahhhhh, distressed and troubled...I'd feel that way, too, if I was hung up on a stick out in the chilly fall garden. Nevertheless, you sure made a cute card. I love the distressing and the scarecrow image!
