Grrreat Camping


Camping season has begun for many - I camped EVERY weekend as a child with my Dad - always had to be someplace Educational too. We were living in Chicago at the time, so ventured to the neighboring States. They were enjoyable times - but, aside from taking Brownies and Girl Guides camping, I haven't camped since returning to Canada. However, you don't have to go camping to enjoy stars, eat S'mores - or get bitten by mosquitos!!!

The sketch for this card is from Stamping 411 and the colours are from the Color Throwdown which was a "Pick a Combo" - Baja Breeze, Old Olive and So Saffron were part of the palette and I added the Chocolate Chip.
The Bear was stamped on Watercolor Paper with StazOn and I used ink with the Aquapainter to colour him in.
I still have a couple tubes of Liquid Applique that I used for the marshmallows in the S'mores. I keep it especially for marshmallows, beer foam, and the occasional cloud. LOL

Hope you are continuing to have a wonderful day - Thanks for stopping by!
Joan
