Pretty Pink Posh – Camping Friends

Hi there!

Today’s card is a bit different for me – all scene and only one tiny little critter that’s not the star of the show! This Camping Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh makes me feel so good though, because it reminds me of my husband and his constant desire to be a good dad to my 4 kids.  Work makes it hard to do fun activities with them, but we have a lot of fun because it really just takes having a good attitude to make the best of our busy schedules.

This card also reminds me of my family’s annual canoe trip.  We’ve never camped or stayed the night – but the fact that we do this annually, is an amazing feat!  If you know my family, you’d definitely raise an eyebrow to hearing about us canoeing…especially together.  LOL.  But it’s a wonderful time and it’s what we look forward to doing every year.  I LOVE it!

Camping Friends 2Alright, alright…let’s talk about the card, shall we?  I started by creating the background.  I started with a 4.25″ by 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used Copic markers to create the scene (E43, E31, E50 for the ground, G03 for the tall grass, and B000, B00 for the sky).  I decided I wanted to give the sky a darker look, so I ink blended over that using Tumbled Glass distress ink first, then Blueprint Sketch.  Then I trimmed the panel, cutting off 1/8″ off each side.  To give it the night sky look, I heat-embossed white stars  in the sky and added some grass on the ground as well.

Once the background scene was created, I set it aside and started to color my stamped images.  I used the following Copic colors:  B0000, B00, B32, Y000, YG11, G03, G05,  Y02, Y12, R05, E50, E31, E34, W00, W1, C0, C2, C3, C5.

Then I laid out the pieces and adhered them to the panel when I was happy –  giving dimension to a few images (the campfire and raccoon).
