Let's Go Camping! STS26



This is such a CAS card for me! That is just an acronym for clean and simple, and like many crafters, I keep on adding until my card front is 'balanced'. I have purposely held back here as the sketch challenge at Seize The Sketch seems to call for a minimalist approach.

My eldest son and his family are right into camping, cycling and surfing. They live about an hour and a half from Melbourne on the surf coast and my grandson attends a little country school. They love the life down there, and so I had my eye on The Great Outdoors stamp set for a while. When it was listed in the Weekly Deals last week at a $13 discount I had to have it and it was delivered yesterday while I was at work. It is important to check the Weekly Deals every Wednesday morning, because it is current stock offered at special prices there, for one week only. The Clearance Rack isn't updated as often, but it is well worth checking regularly too.

It was so easy to stamp just a tent on the white background, and a second one on scrap, along with the sentiment from Playful Pennants. I used a speech bubble from Word Bubble Framelits to cut the sentiment.
I think it is called paper tole when you layer images. I used to make pictures for my children when they were young, with paper tole, and it was fun to add dimension to this tent the same way.
Then I couldn't bear to leave the card completely white, so I have sponged a little blue sky and fluffy white clouds.You can add your card to the Gallery at Seize the Sketch too, I'd love to see you there!

Happy camping and stamping,
Rachel
