MTSC84 Happy Camping!!!

Happy Camping!!! Now if only I were a good camper... I went last summer for the first time in years... and of course it was my hubby and I in a tent while Kim and her family were enjoying themselves in their trailer. I must admit it was a fantastic trip minus me not seeing a divet in the grass and stepping into it, me falling over to the side (it was like someone yelled TIMBER and down I went).  Should I mention that I ended up with a sprained ankle our first full day there!!!  Only good thing about the fall I took was that my hubby and I had to stay an extra day (we had my car and he doesn't drive a Standard (or 5 speed as many Americans would call it) because I wasn't able to drive. 

Oh... I guess you weren't here for me rambling on about camping are you???  As soon as I saw Mercy's sketch for this week (MTSC84), I knew I wanted to play. But what stamps to use???  I found this Inkadinkado set that I've had for such a long time and it hadn't seen ink and realized how well it would go with the Joy Ride Cosmo Cricket DP.  I've stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers.  I tried to keep the colors soft like they were in the DP and it turned out just the way I wanted it to.  Yeah Me!!!

Hope you have a great day!!!

Oh girl! Your colouring is FABULOUS! That DP is perfect for the image too!!

LOL I'm not much of a camper anymore, at least in a tent. We still tent when we go though. No camper or trailer here ;)
