Lets get started as I have 3 cards for you today. I used to stamp sets 1 by Sunny Studio called Critter Campout and 1 by Kindred Stamps Galactic Adventures the Sequel.
For this card I chose to do an inked background with inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest. when I first saw the theme Outdoors, I right away thought of camping and seeing the stars at night. I was just playing around seeing if I could get the look I wanted and then would make the "real" background for the card.
For card 2 I went with paper. I created a sunset background. First off I ink the various papers with coordinating Distress Oxide color and then tore it to get this look. I thought these colors looked like a sunset to me. I used the Neat and Tangled Stitched Slope Dies for the grass cut out from patterned paper from my stash. I added a half circle in which I used a gold glitter pen over the top to make it look lie the sun was setting. These 3 sure do look like they are having fun around the camp fire. I really would enjoy going camping right now for a day or two.
Card 3 is where I used the Galactic Adventure the Sequel. This one is an inked background as well. I used a mask that I made to make sure the sun didn't get a lot of the sky color in it. I added some spots to make the brown look more like sand . I hope this looks like they are out in the desert with the sun shinning down on them. That is the look I was going for.
