Down on the Farm at Craft a Scene

What a great theme Craft a Scene has going on now - Down on the Farm.  I love making scenes!  I found that I didn't have many stamps to depict a farm except the Sutter barn and a few Stampscapes cow stamps.  So I decided to create my farm just like the ones I see up and down Vancouver Island - mostly milking cows.



I started with the 146F Crooked Path and then add my Sutter barn.  Next I layered on a couple of 278F Soft Hill.  I masked off the parts I didn't want stamped over.

I added the two fences (293C and 289D) and then fit as many cows (154B, 157A,172A) in as I could.  I don't know why I added the mountains (211A) last as I usually start with them. We have a few on the island that look just like this stamp!
