Harvest Tractor

In my quest for excellent fall stamps, I once picked up this set from Stampin' Up.  It has potential but somehow always falls short of my expectations.  Yet, I pull it out every year to try again.  This year is one of the better years.  This very detailed stamp absolutely needs to be stamped on a smooth card stock otherwise the image just gets all washed out.  I think I should have dispensed with the pale green ground though.  It makes it look a little more like spring planting season than a fall harvest season.

The Fine Print: Stamp by Stampin' Up "Time and Seasons" set, paper by DCWV, mini scallop border punch by EK Success, brads by Recollections.

It's a beautiful stamp, with lots of coloring details! You have a lot of patience! Great job on the card! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

It's a fab image, and your colouring's gorgeous... I like the green - didn't make me think spring at all, and it gives really great dimension to the picture.
