Another for my Parents

Ok I decided I liked that other card so much, that I needed to do a series of cards with the RV in different places :) So here's the 2nd card in the Going Places series! I hope you like it!

The techniques for this one are pretty much the same as the other card. Stamp the RV, mask it, stamp the cacti masking as you go, color in the RV, cacti, create the road and ground, then mask EVERYTHING again. For the sunset I sponged Apricot where I wanted the sun to go, then I masked it with a punched circle, sponged So Saffron around the sun and up to create the band of color, then sponge the Pumpkin Pie band close to the horizon. The sky is done with Brocade Blue and Ballet Blue. I used the same cloud template as I did on the other card. I've found that looking at actual pictures of sunsets helps to get the right colors and gradients.

I finished the focal piece by punching the corners with the step punch, then matted it on Really Rust. I snipped out 2 of the corners to tie the cord around. Then I mounted it on Sahara Sand (my Mom likes to be able to write on the inside of the cards and has asked for me to make the bases all with light colors). I have had the chevron stamp FOREVER! It's a PSX stamp and I think it was the perfect touch for the side and bottom.

Now for the specifics:

I love this series you are doing for your folks. We have a fifth wheel camper and I wonder if this company has any of them in the stamp collection. Do you have a website for them? You do fabulous work. I look forward to your blog every day and have it in my google reader. My dream would be to travel in the RV full time. Thanks for sharing your work.
