One for my Parents

Mom and Dad bought me this stamp so I'd make cards for them to send to their friends. Last year I made a bunch. They were very simple, but looked really nice. Anyway, fast forward to today... I got a few new A*Muse stamps and this sentiment was one of them! I think it's perfect for anyone traveling. And that's just what my parents do! They travel! Actually they live in their RV and travel the country for their retirement. They had a pretty long pit stop in FL while Mom had her Chemo and radiation treatments for her breast cancer, but they should be on the move again very soon! I know they are excited to be on the road again!

There are so many different techniques used on here... 1st there's masking, I stamped the RV first, then masked it and stamped the line of trees, then I stamped the Spruce trees. I colored them with both ink from the ink pad lid and markers, I then made teh ground around the trees with the markers adn watercoloring with ink. After that I lined the edge of the "dirt" and masked the RV. I sponged the road using Sahara and Gray. The sky was done by cutting a cloud template from a post it note and sponging in the Bashful Blue. I just kept moving it around until I liked the clouds. Then I went over them again, so they weren't white-white. The sentiment is stamped in Not Quite Navy :)
