The Great Outdoors

Hello All,

My family and I love to camp. This Summer we have traveled all around the state of Michigan. Camping at our state parks proves to be a fabulous way to spend time exploring and spending quality time with my family. This is why The Paper Players and the one layer challenge at Addicted to CAS really peeked my interest with this week's challenges. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


I originally thought I would watercolor this card until I got a very large smudge on my card. So out of frustration I took my finger and smudged it all over the bottom of the card. I was taken back how striking the black and white looked. 


I used three stamps to create this scene.
The couple who are in the foreground, the tall pines are in the midground
and the mountain scene in the background.
All I had to do was mask the couple and stamp!

The smudging created a gradation effect to the couple
which I feel really makes this card gorgeous and a bit dreamy. 
Challenges Entered:
Addicted to CAS: Challenge #117- One Layer Card
The Paper Players: Theme Challenge- the great outdoors (PP356)

 

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best, 
Shawna

Shawna, how fun that you go camping all the time! I love this gorgeous monochromatic card! I agree, the smudging adds so much detail! SO happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week! XX

Shawna I love that your happy accidental smudge resulted in you creating your monochromatic card - the black on white is really striking and almost like a pencil or charcoal drawing. Beautiful! I'm not much of a camper, much to the dismay of the rest of my family, but I love your card nonetheless! Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
