Father's Day / Sports Collaboration

While you are there don't forget that for the Month of May we have a store collab with the theme of Father's Day & Sports which is free with a $10 purchase.

For my card I had the great pleasure to use a fabulous set of stamps from Reece's Scrap Pieces called Camping Stamp Pack which you can purchase from the Stitchy Bear Store HERE. It contains 14 separate images for only $7.00, that is amazing value and many of them can be used for other cards, not just camping.

For my card I wanted to a collage style and create a picture. This is something I am very proud of as it is the first time I have attempted anything like this. I made a couple of mistakes where I overlapped the tent over the tree and the top wooden log as you can see the original image underneath but on the whole I am really chuffed with it. It was just like playing with fuzzy felt pieces when I was a child.

The stretched the pine tree to make it a bit longer and flipped and rotated other elements to make an overall picture that I was happy with. I added a little sunshine to the sky which was a freebie image from Kikkin Kreations. When I was happy with the image I printed it out A6 size and coloured it in with Promarkers. I added grass and sky and some birdies with a grey pen. The whole scene reminds me so much of a secluded little place we camp in Wales, it just needs a little stream and some sheep that come roaming in between the tents at 5 am (that is surreal when it snuffles round your head and makes a baa noise down your ear....especially if you have had alcohol the night before LOL)

The finished card is an A5 size. The camping theme paper and stickers are from DCWV and the brads are from Papermania. I based the layout on sketch MMSC103 from Midnight Madness Sketches.

I know we will see lots of entries for this challenge and I am looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your entries.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical order) :-
