Dad's Cabin

This is for today's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Pencils and I used a sketch and color challenge from a few weeks ago from H&M Stamp Co Heather Rolin's Blog. I made this and never had loaded it. Hope you like it. It is really hard to make a masculine card look nice without looking pretty. They don't seem to like it to look pretty. LOL.
I used a set from H&M called DAD'S CABIN (check it out this set is marked down for sale right now). I also used SU Flannel plaid background. Card base is Night of Navy with Soft Sky layered. Focal image is matted on green galore. I used ink pads and sponges to create the sky and grass then I drew grass sprigs with the GG marker. I made dots with basic gray marker around the GG circle because it was bare and I guess I was have some stamp retreat hang overs from all the dots we did that weekend. LOL. Dad's cabin is stamped in basic gray on GG, cut out and popped up. I used some navy hemp. Crystal Effects on the windows. I moved that layer to the top of this card to make it like a sign above the door. Don't forget to keep an eye out for the new releases from H&M begining September 1st, just 4 more days. Yepee.
