Make more than just cards with your TGF stamps!

Hello, everyone!  Farmer Annie greeting you today.  I want to share a project I recently made with the new Wild Sprouts - GRACIE stamp... and guess what?  It's not a card!
I wanted to make something more permanent for myself to hang on the wall in my crafting area, to always inspire me to continue doing what I love to do, which is being crafty. :)
The base of this wall-hanging is a sturdy page from a chipboard album.  I found the album in the dollar bins at Michael's craft store.  It came with four of these scalloped pages.  You could use anything as a base -- a cardboard box cut into the shape you want, a plastic lid, or even just a large piece of card stock will work.
I painted the base black and decorated the front pretty much the same way I would decorate a card.
I stamped Gracie onto watercolor paper and water colored her with my Distress Inks.  I added some Stardust Stickles to her clothes and dabbed a bit on the flowers and it was done!  It all came together pretty quickly...
Want to see?  I made a video just for you!  :)  You can view the video {HERE} on my YouTube channel or down below:
Thanks for joining me today!  I hope this inspires you to try making something new with your TGF stamps.  Be sure to join us tomorrow for another fabulous Farm Fresh Friday challenge!
