Hiking Edwin

 


 

 
 
Hello Friends and Stampers,
 
It's time for a whole new theme over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  This week we want you to show us your tall and skinny cards 4x9.  When I first read this challenge, I was thinking how great my Hiking Edwin and Walter the Moose would fit together on the same card.  I was really excited when the Hiking Background fit as well.  So this is my one layer card hiking scene.  I had seen these used in a different way together last year and asked Laura if she would get these three Magnolia's from the Turning a New Leaf Series and she did!!!  In fact so far, everything I've asked for, she has gotten in the store.  She is so wonderful to design for!  I've had them for a little while but have not had the opportunity to ink them up yet, so I was glad to get the chance now.  I colored them with my Copic Markers and used my airbrush for the background with my Copic Markers as well. 
 
Initially I had purchased these three stamps thinking I would get some Scrapbooking done, lol.  I have lots of hiking and camping pics I need to get scrapbooked from the cubscout stuff.  So I was happy to "try them out" here and OMGosh that Moose is the cutest thing ever!  Magnolia stamps are easy to color because they offer hashes and dots of areas that should be darker, so they are a no brainer for coloring and you know, sometimes that just helps out a lot, lol. 
 
Four by nine is out of my comfort zone, but since I was able to fill in the space and create a scene, I had a great time with this and I know you will too.  I cannot wait to see whatcha make!
 
Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.
 
Holly
