If you have an outdoors man or woman for that matter on your card list this card may be for you.
Today’s card is using a large main image panel (4.5″ x 6″) so it doesn’t leave much room for bling. But with a great scene you don’t want bling, right? I know some of you are gasping right now, lol. But really, you don’t want to distract your viewer’s attention with a bunch of bling when you have created a panel this large.
I currently have dough rising. I’m in the process of making homemade Broccoli, cheese and ham calzones so I must get moving. With that being said, let’s get started on today’s tutorial. . . . . . .

Started with a 4.5″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White card stock. Loaded my Camper stamp with Versamark and then Basic Black ink before I stamped it. Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Went over the bottom area of the Bashful Blue again using the Bashful Blue marker to create a sense of roundness to the camper. Also colored over the slated bottom of the camper using the Sahara Sand marker again to create a darker tone of that color.
Stamped the Lovely As A Tree Pine using Basic Black ink. Stamped the image 3 times.
Stamped the Season of Friendship tree using Basic Black ink. Wiped the ink off of my embossed image.
Stamped the leaves using Old Olive ink.
Added Basic Black ink leaves.
Removed the hill mask and sponged Old Olive ink on it.
Sponged Basic Black ink at the base of the hill.
Added White Gel Pen highlights to the leaves, back of camper, windows and made little strokes with the pen to create grasses.
Toned down the highlighted leave by going over them with an Old Olive marker.
Stamped the Word Play Sentiment using Whisper White ink.
Added a few White Gel pen dots in the sky for stars.
Added an Old Olive Panel, 4 - 1″ Basic Black square punches on the corners of the Old Olive Panel. Added a Basic Black panel and 4 gold brads to the corners of the main image panel.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May you breath fresh air today.
