I took waaaaaay longer to get this card done than needed. But, when you have to do a close up of your card, it's best if you haven't got a bunch of smears. A bunch! Then I just fussed and fussed some more. Good thing it turned out this cute!!
Here's the supply list (CTMH in italics):
- Stamps: Camper Crazy
- Ink: Cocoa and Juniper
- Cardstock: Cranberry and Honey (paper pieced bottom of camper and windows)
- Marking pens: Honey, Twilight, Cocoa, and Copic W3 (gray)
- Accessories: Sanding Kit, Liquid Glass, Sponge Daubers, white gel pen, heart punch, large deckle edge scissors
The little flag coming off the back was one of those trying-to-cover-a-flub things that worked out to be perfect. If you look closely, you'll see a place where I got Cocoa ink on the edge of my acrylic block. When I stamped "HOME is," a bit of it got right under where that red flag is now. I was going to cover it with the flag, but it looked better higher. I hand-drew the flag pole with my Cocoa marker. I got the red flag from the camper image I had stamped in Cocoa on Cranberry cardstock. It's the awning that's on the right side of the camper with little ruffles hanging off. I cut off the ruffles and flipped the awning upside down.
The sentiment comes as one block of text. I cut it in half to separate the saying. If I were to do this over again, I would stamp "HOME" by itself on the top, and add "is" to the bottom strip of words. But, after as much time as it took to get this done, I wasn't about to start over again.
As this post goes up, I am on a plane heading back from my mother-daughter trip to Paris. And, no, we didn't stay in an RV!
Until next time,
