I am fortunate enough to be a member of a group on SCS: Crafters of Faith. Barb is our wonderful challenge hostess for August and she challenged us to make a card in honor of one or both of our parents. Anything that brings them to mind...
Well, that's a tall order. Could it be how my folks always fed hummingbirds, and helped me learn how to spot their nests? Could it be the many fun memories digging clams, fishing or catching Dungeness crab? Could it be working on cars in my Dad's auto shop? The list goes on and on.
Then I spied a new addition to my stash from Whippersnappers. Presto! I knew that camping would be the theme of my card!
Isn't this a fun image? I love the casual look to it, almost as if a child drew it. It's colored with Derwent and Prismas, blended with gamsol. The background sky is light grey and Stardust Stickles were used to highlight the starry night. The flames have a coating of Crystal Effects by SU.
Here's the sentiment that I chose from Little Paper Shop. (Sorry, but the package does not have a name for the set.)
My parents had me tent camping when I was only 6 months old. We lived in the Pacific Northwest corner of Washington State and there's plenty of options for camping: ocean beaches, mountains, islands, even a rain forest! There was a big gang of us that camped together, eventually forming the state's first trailer club. It was a great way to learn about nature and have loads of fun too.
Thanks for giving us such a great challenge this month, Barb! Many, many blessings to each of you & thanks for stopping by!
