Dream Different Dreams.....

This card sketch is from the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog, and I thought I'd play along. Stamps are from Artistic Outpost, and I actually combined 3 different plates to make this card, Paris Expo, Road Trip and Chinese Proverbs. The little boy is stamped on something new I found at CHA, EcoArtBoard. This is a great product, totally green, from 100% recycled materials and you can find it here. I really had a fun time using the product at CHA, ordered some from Harry, and really like the idea that I have something else to stamp on other than card stock. It gives such nice depth to your project, because it's about 1/8th inch thick. It comes in 3 sizes, 4x6, ATC size, and mixed bag, which is pieces of various sizes. (it is not the stuff you scratch into) When you place an order, please tell Harry that Gerrie sent you! thanks...The image was stamped onto the EcoArtBoard and colored with markers. I added the Wisped Frames tech from the latest issue of the TJNL. The fence boards were run thru an embossing folder, inked up some, and I added the part of the Faux Wood tech from the TJNL to make it look like planks. Check out the little jewelry findings I used in the top corners....why not!! Here is a close up so you can actually see the dimension this adds to your projects...



I just love the look. Come back tomorrow when I make an ATC with some EcoArtBoard. As always, I appreciate your stopping by, hugz..........
