Old McDonald had a farm

Here is my first project using H&M Stamps. This set is called Kiddie Farm. You can tell I have a little boy how loves tractors and singing Old McDonald! This mini book from Maya Road doesn't have all the words, but enough to get him singing on his own.
On a side note, these stamps are clear acrylic and fantastic! Seriously nice stamps. Soft, solid, and a great stamped image. I have never used Heather's stamps before and I would recommend them!!

I stamped each of the animals on felt, to give them a soft and more dimensional feel. I use felt I buy at Michael's and Memories (dye-based) Black ink. It can smudge, so let it dry for a little but before handling. I forgot to pick up pink felt, so I colored it with my Copic markers and it worked perfectly!




The rest of the pieces were all stamped onto patterned paper and pieced together. I started cutting out the apples by hand, but realized quickly that a standard hole punch would be much easier. :) I did color the tractor on the cover with Copics, too much detail to piece there! :) thanks for stopping by! oh, and no snow, yet.
Supplies:
Stamps-H&M (Kiddie Farm)
Album-Maya Road
Patterned paper-Dotted (Bo Bunny), Plaids (Scenic Route)
Cardstock-Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink-Tuxedo Black (Memento), Black (Memories)
