Hiya!! I absolutely love this barn, I get totally fascinated with the colors of old barns, they are always such a mixture of colors!! I colored the barn with Copic's, the back ground was sponged with Memento's ink. The card stock is MFP and DP is 7 gypsies. Click on photo for a larger view.

Hope you get a chance to the rest of the team fabulous designs.
