Making Camp

Vicky Gould gave the Stampin B challenge this week to make a square card with a western theme. I'm so glad she wanted it square because I never make those. I really like this one and will now make them more often. I didn't have a western theme stamp so I used a digital image from Stamp-n-Doodle called Making Camp. The challenge can be found here every Thursday.

I'm also entering this card into the Treehouse Stamps blog challenge here. Their challenge THT064 is to use Fall colors: orange, olive, and summer sun.

I printed it on my watercolor paper, colored with my Tombows and a brush, added some twine and a brad, sponged the sky a bit and I'm finished. I think it made a super, masculine card.

Paper: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, The Paper Studio moss corrugated, The Paper Studio Crocodile-Brown
Steve's Pages by Sugar Free
