Moose You So Much

Some days we just need time to create and play.  Sunday afternoon was one of those days.  I have purchased some fun new stamps and dies from Hero Arts, and wanted to make a few Operation Write Home cards.  This is the first of two cards, I will post the second tomorrow. 

First up I started with the sketch from Try Stamping –or not- on Tuesday.  I have a bin full of “card kit” paper scraps from completed scrapbook layouts, and this paper is from SEI’s En Route paper line.  Since they are scraps, not all of the actual names of the individual sheets are known.  I was able to make 2 coordinating cards from the leftover scraps of one layout.  Yeah!

The images are from Hero Arts Missing You and the matching Frame cuts.  The Moose was stamped in Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Chameleon Pens.  I used Bisque NU1, Fawn NU3, Hot Cocoa BR2, and Cool Gray CG8.  A circular coloring technique was used to give a bit of texture to his fur.  The sentiment is stamped in Tsukineko Versa Magic Aloe Vera.  Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling card die set provided the polka dot panel and mini hearts.  This was fun and quick card to put together!

This card is entered into the following challenges:
