A great group of stampers on SCS have come together to have a mystery swap group. Each member of the group will be sent the same mystery item(s). The theory of the swap it to see how everyone creates differently, with the same mystery item(s).
This is our first swap! Our mystery item(s) are from My Favorite Things. The stamp is Fred Bear Goes Camping. This image was chosen by Jeanette, who has a great blog you will want to visit.
Here is my mystery card for this swap:
The card base is Speckletone card stock in Chocolate. The second layer is Stampin' UP! Really Rust that has been embossed with the Tim Holtz folder Woodgrain in my Cuttlebug. I rubbed the embossed grain with Stampin' UP! Really Rust ink. The DP is from Sandylion.
I used a Martha Stewart leaf punch on various scraps of card stock to create the leaves Fred is sitting upon. I distressed the leaves with Really Rust ink as well. I rubbed ink on the sentiment to distress the look of the paper.
I colored Fred and the fire with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. For the flames I used Tim Holtz Distressed Stickles as well as regular Stickles to mute the glitter. The eyelets and hemp cord, I had on hand.
I really enjoyed working with the images and cannot wait for the next mystery package to arrive! Thanks for taking a peek.
