Got Directions?

The challenge at  Wee Memories challenge this week is Anything Goes. The sponsor is iCopic which means the prize is fabulous! (Ciaos)

This is my card for the challenge:
I saw this sweet paper from October Afternoon called Campsite and then found the coordinating stamps. I usually don't do the cute animal images but I thought the bear and fox were so sweet in this set.

My favorite part of this card is the piece of map I cut up and folded in his hands to make it look realistic. My daughter said "but it is upside down!" Perfect touch as he looks so lost and you know he is not going to ask for directions. HA! 

All the paper is October Afternoon. The bear and sign post are stamped using Ranger Archival ink, Versafine Vintage Sepia  and colored with water and watercolor markers. The directions on the signpost are empty and you can write anything you want which I did trying to emulated the etched effect in the wood.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts but I think works perfectly with us getting lost sometimes in life. :) 

Hope your Saturday is going well... I have some fun news that I wanted to share.. I am very happy to say that I am joining the Design Team for Chapel Road Stamps at Class Act. I am looking forward to creating with their beautiful stamps. 


Thanks for stopping by...
