OWH – I Love You S’more

  • Stamps – My Favorite Things “Flopsy Goes Camping”
  • Stencil – The Crafter’s Workshop “Quatrefoil” by Ronda Palazzari
  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey “Out of Print”
  • Copic Markers and Ranger Distress Ink
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

It is my habit to take a little bit of stamping and cardmaking stuff with me when I go camping. I set-up on a picnic table or a stump (really!) and ink away. I seem to be particularly drawn to distress techniques, since they are already kind of messy and a little dirt won’t hurt! I managed to make five cards and a couple of tags on our trip this past weekend. So in the spirit of camping, I thought I’d use this marshmallow-toasting bunny stamp I received during the OWH fundraiser. I also followed the color theory recommendations in the most recent OWH Design Bootcamp to use a major, minor and accent color for a nicely balanced palette. I created the background using Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and pounced it through the stencil. It really looks like patterned paper when it’s done. I tried to vary the application of ink so it is lighter and darker across the background, and if you use your imagination, could emulate the night sky. The little campfire is colored with Copics. The bunny is pure white and popped up for a little dimension. Thanks for visiting.

    I am beyond impressed that you manage to stamp and make cards while camping! This MFT S’mores Bunny is so cute and you’ve done a great job applying the 60-30-10 proportions while using a pattern no less. Nice job Yvonne! Thanks for joining in on the July Bootcamp.
