The challenge over at All That Scraps this week is a manly card. I chose to color Trevor and Emma all decked out in their hiking gear ready for an afternoon of hitting the trails. I really enjoyed each facet of making this card. I've had that embossing folder since this summer and have never used it before. Yesterday when I was shopping I picked up a $1.99 Inkadinkado stamp with those fab leaves. I colored the stamp with my Marvy watercolor markers and huffed. I really like the effect it gave. It made it look like they were standing at a trail head. The rest of that torn paper background piece was distressed with TH Broken China.
Of course had to use the Copics and here's a close up of the kids:
I wanted to really play up the whole hiking theme so I popped up their little boots.
Here's a list of the products used:
