America the Beautiful

I got my long awaited new stamps from GinaK Designs on Wednesday, got them cut out on Thursday and got to play when I got home from work! I love Theresa Momber's new stamp set, Happy Camper, but my favorite stamp is the mountains and trees.

I stamped the mountain scene stamp side by side. After finishing the project I wish that I had not lined them up quite so well, so just pretend that the mountains on the right are closer than they appear :)

I wanted this to look like a framed portrait by placing the sentiment where I did at the bottom like a plaque on a portrait frams.

I colored with copic markers and used a post-it-note mask to create the clouds using my Tim Holtz distress ink and foam applicator pads. These are the products that I almost always use to sponge around my image and edges but when doing clouds I only use the narrow end of the pad.

After creating this project with Theresa's wonderful set I will be singing America the Beautiful at work all night :)

I can't wait to play with my other GinaK stamp sets. I have to work tomorrow during the day, and then I will watch the Firewords from my front yard. There is a golf course that puts on one of the best Fireworks Displays in Omaha that is only about a half mile from my house. At 10:00 I will be sitting in my front yard watching their wonderful display and never have to leave home. Works for me!!!

Be sure to take time this week-end to check out the Forth of July blog hop sponsored by Scrapbook News and Review which starts at 9:00 AM tomorrow. You can start here:

Have a Happy and Safe Holiday week-end. Be sure to check my blog tomorrow for the Blog Hop, Artful Sentiments Copic Challenge and who knows what else I may have up my sleeve by tomorrow night.
