|Start:||Getting back from a quick weekend trip on this Sunday afternoon, I had time to occupy myself in the studio, waiting for the ice to melt and anticipating picking up Duke from the kennel. I decided to use another Stuck?! sketch and just pull the first picture I could find that would work with it. I’m working my way through a stack of odds and ends photos that accumulated last year, because I am too lazy to organize or prioritize them.|
|Story:||This snapshot is the Harvest Inn in Napa Valley. We really like Napa and this Inn was both charming and comfortable. They also have plan to open a small restaurant this year, so we will have an excuse to revisit them.|
|Stash:||All the paper here is leftover bits from my February Counterfeit Kit, everything else was pulled from stash.|
Stampin Up resist specialty cardstock, Studio Calico Mr. Huey Bazinga mist, American Crafts Dear Lizzy Thickers, Peebles Carefree alphabet, Hello Forever stickers and buttons from my stock.
I decided to use my Fiskars cloud stamps in three sizes to punch scraps and then use them as masks on the top of the background. I love the way the way this looks again the resist crosshatch pattern, and ties into that paper on the right from My Mind’s Eye (Lime Twist Geniune). You will notice I also sprinkled a few punched clouds around the clusters as well.
Clouds are not the only thing repeated on the page - arrows included those stamped with a Freckled Fawn (Oh Deer Me) set, appear around the page.
