I am on a Roll.

Yep two blog entries in one day.  I also thought I would do a card for Casology - challenge "Camp".

I made one of these cards many years ago using Stampscape Stamps and wanted to recreate it for this challenge. the background is made using a brayer, stamped with Stazon inks on gloss paper and colored with Stampin' Up markers.  Because all images are stamped in black there was no need to mask anything off.  Over all creating something like this is pretty easy it just takes some planning on where to place the images.

Stamps - Stampscape, Stampin' Up
Ink - Stazon, Stampin' Up markers and ink pads
Give this a try using multiple scenery stamps.

July Unity Challenge

Okay so it has been over a year since I posted anything.  I guess I am not into blogging.  Read lots of blogs but just not one who contributes to keeping hers  up and running let alone interesting.  Maybe someday.  But right now I still have so many things on my to do list that blogging is just too far down on the list to worry about.  However I do find I have enjoyed doing the Unity Stamp Companies monthly challenge so here is my contribution, brought to you because it rained the past two days I couldn't be outside.

Living where summers are short, maybe three months tops, I spend nearly everyday out there in the sunshine and working on the yard duties.  We haven't gotten to the "just maintenance" stage yet as we are still clearing trees, and this years big duty for me is putting in a drip system.  There are periods of dry and hot and my garden, both flowers and vegetable need daily watering's.  Plus until this is accomplished it is very difficult to travel anywhere for more then a couple days.

My husband is begging me to spend more time water coloring and learning that medium more but somehow I have placed it on the side and delved into stamping cards instead of painting pictures.  Though on some level I have missed it.  Thus I did a bit of water color on this card for the challenge.

I used the card sketch in my challenge.  Since I have a hard time incorporating all the pretty papers I have collected over the years into my cards I decided to use those as the sketch appeared that many different papers are in the background.  I really enjoyed making this card and think it came together quite effortlessly.
