The Great Outdoors !

It's time for the next challenge over at Frilly and Funkie and Linda has challenged us to create a project with the theme of the Great Outdoors and also to include a quote about the great outdoors/nature too! Do make sure you hop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's fabulous work !

I have to admit I was a little stumped when I saw the challenge theme then I remembered a set of Aspects of Design stamps I had stashed away in a drawer. I blended some DI over white card stock and then stamped onto it. The quote is cut out using the Movers & Shapers Mini Labels die and I've added some eyelets and twine. The map was downloaded from the Graphics Fairy and I've distressed it with DI.

I've used the Tim Holtz Filmstrip die and blended Walnut Stain DI over it. The word Postcard is from the Artistic Outpost Ephemera stamp set and I've masked off the rest of the stamp as I only wanted the words. The background is stamped with a stamp from the Tim Holtz Curiosities stamp stamp and I've stamped over the top with the Stampin' up Sanded stamp.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
