Home is Where You Park It! | Art Impressions

Hello friends!  It's already week two of Art Impressions' Couple Cards challenge, which means you can create a card with any "pair" theme.  I had so much fun masking, stamping and coloring this scene for the couple from the Happy Trails Set!  This set also has a camper stamp and sentiments to use on a birthday card, a retirement card, and a few other general ones.

To begin, I actually planned my scene (gasp! Me, planning? LOL!)  by stamping onto some printer paper to get an idea of where I wanted everything to be.  Then I stamped the images onto masking paper and fussy cut out the tree and just the portions of the people that needed to be masked.  I stamped the people first, applied their masks, then using my sheet I planned on, I positioned the lights.  I just fussy cut the ends of the lights mask and applied it.  Then I stamped both trees.  

Because I'm not really experienced at coloring/free-handing a background, I colored it first.   The Copic colors are listed below.  Once I knew I'd be happy with the background, I finished coloring the rest.  Did you notice how I snuck in red and green?  I was kind of thinking "Christmas on the beach!" Sounds good to me!

I die cut the colored panel and the green card stock layer with the Rectangle Double Stitched dies.  Then I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink using my MISTI.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today and that you'll be entering your project into the Couple Cards Challenge!
