I will definitely miss this wonderful stamp set! It has been a great set for making masculine cards, which for me can be difficult to create. I used the layout from this week’s Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast. The original layout is from a fabulous card done by Trudee. To see more of her awe-inspiring work, click on the link “Follow Your Bliss” under my blogroll. I very rarely do faux stitching on cards, but I was too lazy to lug out my sewing machine today, so I used my paper piercing tool and mat and a Chocolate Chip marker. The image was watercolored with an Aqua Painter and Reinkers using Cool Caribbean for the sky, Sahara Sand for the sand :), Old Olive for the fronds and Chocolate Chip for the trunk. Please click on the photo to see the finer details. Thanks so much for visiting today!
