FCD Goes Outdoors


Hi everyone! Welcome to another fun hop with the FireCracker Designs DT team! We are showing you the wonderful outdoor stamps that Pamela has and a fistful of ideas to give you some inspiration to get creating on your own!

This is a roundy style hop again , no set beginning, no set end. Wherever you start is also your end point and no one knows where the blog candy is hidden along the way so if you want a chance you have to make the complete circle and leave comments for everyone since you don't know which one the winner will be chosen from! The hop is open from today June 27th through Tuesday June 30th at 8 PM.
You can check out Pamela's blog for the posting of the winner after the end.

So are you ready? Let's check out the Outdoors then!



I had a horrible time getting this card to photograph, it looked blurry or dark (too much shadow) and then scanning it didn't work due to the buttons and it wouldn't lay flat - so you have to trust me when I tell you it is a very nice card! LOL

I did the scene with stamps from Pamela's new set - Just Breathe (Again) and then used cosmetic sponges and Palette Inks to dab on and color around. He coat and hair were colored with a Copic Marker. I used a mask of the main image to lay over while I applied the greens and browns and then used a torn piece of paper to fashion the mountains. The sky (clouds) were simply done by not rubbing the sponge across and just dabbing it instead.

Now off to Lisa's blog to see what she has done for the hop.


hugs,


P.S. If you are just now joining us and it is past June 3oth (8 PM) you are free to carry on with the hop just know the candy is already claimed.
