Wild About You

Hi everyone!  I'm a bit late with my post today but life got in the way this past weekend and there was barely enough time to make cards let alone write and schedule a blog post.  So this will be quick.

This card is for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  It is Julie's last week this month and she gave us a fun sketch.
Recently, I've been remounting old wooden mount stamps as cling mount, and I had just done this set.  I thought the two pine trees would work great for the sketch, but it needed a bit more so I added the bear.

I would not have tried this layout before I remounted the stamps.  I used my MISTI so I could stamp the images a few times each.  I find solid stamps often don't stamp very well when stamped just once. I also was able to mask off the bear and then position the trees where I wanted by stamping on an acetate sheet.  I used the sheet to cover my bear panel and when the trees looked like they were where I wanted them I removed the sheet and stamped them on the actual card.

The sentiment is from another old set that I remounted.  You may be seeing a lot of "retro" cards soon!

  1. Jeanne I love the woodland feel of your card with the patterned paper frame and your bear is the perfect addition to turn your trees into a little scene. Gorgeous!

  2. I don't have many wood mounted stamps but you're inspiring me to go through my stash. I love your take on the sketch and the DP is so perfect.
