ISSC33 - Explore with eclectic Paperie!

Hi everyone! It's been a few days...or seven since I posted last due entirely to lack of mojo so what better way to get that mojo kick started then to use this week's iSpy Sketch! The ISSC33 challenge is from Cindy Elam (Cards4Ever @ SCS) and is based on this card

 I started off by straying a little from the sketch by coming up with this camping scene using the Gone Camping set by Market Street Stamps. I'm not sure if you can tell or not but there is a pretty thick coating of Glossy Accents on the trailer to give it more of a metal feel and I added a mini brad for the door knob :)

I Sponged the sky in with Ranger Distress Weathered Wood and Broken China and then attacked my grass and handmade trees with Ranger Distress Forest Moss and hit up the gravel with Ranger Distress Pumice Stone. I used two different inks on the tree trunks - Ranger Distress Vintage Photo and Rusty Hinge.

I thought that I would try something a little different and cut out the campfire from the curly cue smoke and added it to my scene, replacing the stamped "smoke" with some Mini Rhinestone Swirls "smoke" :) I then finished off the card with a little stamp tag and anchored it down with some Caribbean Twine :D
