Punch Art Tractor........


I've been seeing these punch art tractors on Splitcoast for a while now. I just LOVE them! I have always wanted to make one and by the time I got all the punches, I was on to other things.....
So thanks to my QFTD45, Heather, I was able to make one. This is Heather's card. Of course I am just now getting around to noticing how much more I like her wheels embossed than my own, lol.
I went to the couple links from Heather's card to get the card recipe.
I used all SU punches: large tag, word window, heart, circles and large scallop that I snipped the edges with the arrow punch. Tricky! I just cut the steering column and hand cut the wheel. I used the blossoms flower punch for the smoke stacks and sponged them going grey. I used the words from Loads of love and the wheat from Autumn Harvest. I got that card floss on the tag today from the local crafty store, It's Karen Foster and it's made from paper and super easy to work with. LOVE it! I stamped the wheat it more mustard after sponging the ground with creamy Carmel and the sky with bashful blue.
In order to catch up with two more QFTD's tonight, I had to stay up an hour past my bedtime and leave the dishes. I have tomorrows QFTD all set up ready to KopyKat, I figure I have enough dishes and pans to make dinner for tomorrow and then by Wednesday we'll have to eat take out so I can do the many loads of dishes, lol. And the really funny part is that all the other card makers out there are shaking their heads in acknowledgement, lol.
Okay, going to bed now. :)

I actually have a tractor die and made a card for my grandson. I like the way this card has the wheat stamped - I never thought of doing something like that. Cute how this is made from various punches!!!! And love the little "puffs of smoke". :)
