Build Dreams, Camping

For our oldest grandson, Evan.

He went on a camping trip to Catalina Island (California). He's getting older all the time! So I made this card for him to help mark another adventure in his life.

Stamp Set: The Good Life by Theresa Momber, available at Gina K. Designs
This scene is colored with Memento Markers, touched up with Stickles Diamonds and Stardust glitter pens in Yellow (Coleman lantern) and clear (metal chair frames and pegs for tent).
I wanted the fish to look like trout so painted them with pink and blue, a touch of lavender, then spread Stickles over them. I added stickles to the fire, too.

The tent is paper pieced and pop dotted, as are the fire, lantern, the fish and the sentiment.

I cut the ends off a toothpick, then colored it lightly with brown, used Glossy Accents to attach to card.

Add twine at the bottom, and the aqua Bazzill paper in the background is embossed with Stampin' Up Square Lattice.
