Hello Bestie...

Hey there!

It's time to kick off previews for the June release at The Greeting Farm! There are three new clear sets coming out on Wednesday, the 15th. Today we are introducing the new Hello Bestie set to The Farm. As soon as I laid eyes on this set with its two mega mini kiddos and seven anthropomorphic animals I was getting strong Animal Crossing vibes. So when it came time to create a card and color in a scene, I went straight to the video game for inspiration. I colored the little gal to look like my own ACNH avatar and then surrounded her with villagers colored to look like Marshal the squirrel, Gabby the rabbit and Audie the fox. They have all congregated near Resident Services, which I free hand colored into the scene. The highly stylized tree was also free handed using my Copics while I stamped the tulip from the set three times to match the flowers in the game. The finishing touch is the balloon sailing overhead with a gift attached. I gotta say, I had a lot of fun transforming this set into my favorite video game and I can't wait to do it again with the rest of the characters. :)   

Ok, now be sure to check out the TGF blog to see all of the fun cards from my fellow Farmers using the new Hello Bestie set. Then check back on Monday for day two of previews. :)
