This week Kath Ricks is hosting a Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge. This comes at a perfect time since I needed a card for a special boy. And since this challenge is "anything goes", the sky is the limit so I can go wherever my creativity takes me.
What boy doesn't like getting outdoors and camping? The retiring Always an Adventure bundle is perfect for something like that. With a bit of stamping and a lot of cutting with the matching Outdoor Adventure dies, I had enough images and pieces to put together a card. I began with a base of Chocolate Chip cardstock and then added a layer of the retiring Delightful Dijon. I decided to add another layer, partly Marina Mist for the sky and partly Mint Macaron for the meadow.
My mountains are cut from Early Espresso for the distant range and Tip Top Taupe for the closer range. The snow on top is, of course, Whisper White. The trees are all cut from Garden Green. The distant trees have a wash of Garden Green over them and the closer two trees in which the bear is doing a really bad job of hiding are Garden Green stamped with the same ink. The tent is Delightful Dijon stamped in the same ink and the bear is Tip Top Taupe stamped with Chocolate Chip ink.
As you can see, I've added a bit of a wash of Garden Green over parts of the Mint Macaron to give it more texture. I hope you've enjoyed my interpretation of Kath's challenge. And now I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the rest of the Watercooler Artists at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge blog.
I've also added my card to the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.
And I've also joined the birthday boy fun at the Little Red Wagon Challenge.
