**As a Design Team Member for The Greeting Farm, I receive product in exchange for my posts. This post may also contain affiliate links when possible at no cost to you. Clicking on these links helps me continue to bring you great content and I thank you for your support!**

http://thegreetingfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/farmfreshchallenge.png

Just a reminder: Since this is a month-long challenge, The Greeting Farm will allow 2 entries per person to keep things as fair as possible.

Hi Farmers!! Today starts a new Farm Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm! Our Farm Fresh Challenges start on the first of every month and run for an entire month to give you more time to enter. To top it all off, the prize amount is $50!!! Can you believe it?!! At the end of the month you could possibly win a $50 Gift Certificate to The Greeting Farm Store!!

Were you the winner from last month's challenge? Be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to see our winner and more inspiration from my fellow team members.

Now on to our OCTOBER Farm Fresh Challenge. This month our challenge is another fun one:

MONOCHROMATIC!


I had so much fun creating my card for this challenge. I love the way monochromatic looks on kraft card stock no matter what color you go with. I knew I wanted to stamp the cute little fox from the Oh, What Fun set but I also wanted to create a little scene with another stamp from The Greeting Farm and I finally decided to go with Call Me Ian because he would go with the vintage look I was going for. I did a little bit of masking to start building my scene. I also stamped the trees from Oh, What Fun a little in the background. When none of the sentiments from either stamp sets really went with my scene, I dug through more of my TGF stash and found this fun one from the Mini-Remix Fall set. I think the little fox looks like he's trying to give you a hug! 


I will have the entire coloring process on my YouTube channel tomorrow if you want to check it out be sure to subscribe so you are notified when it goes live!

 Now be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to read the rules and link up your card.

Hugs!

It’s the 15th, and that means the new SEPTEMBER Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. Today, we released PEACE ON EARTH, OH WHAT FUN, MERRY & BRIGHT, and HOLIDAY WISHES! To celebrate we are having a BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home all 4 sets!! Pretty awesome, right?


Happy Release Day!!! I had a hard time choosing which stamp to use for today's post so I combined three! Peace On Earth, Oh, What Fun and Merry & Bright. Just a little bit of masking before I watercolored this cute little scene.


I really enjoyed watercoloring the stamps this month. This scene is definitely one of my favorites. Other than the skin tone, I used Daniel Smith Watercolors exclusively on this card. Oh, and in case you were wondering (I've been SUPER bad about writing out my supplies list...so sorry) I used Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor paper for all the watercoloring this week and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. ;) 

Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog, and then head back to The Greeting Farm Blog to let us know you completed the hop.

You have until Wednesday, September 20th at 12pm CST to leave your comments.
We will announce the random winner over the weekend.

Hi everyone and welcome to Day 3 of our September previews at The Greeting Farm! Continuing right along with watercoloring these adorable set called Merry & Bright.
