Huck & Tom See America

It's the Artistic Outpost May Blog Hop, featuring the AO Design Team.  We are using the Huck Finn OR Route 66 set this month.

I paired Huck & Tom with the Hero plate this month, coloring the boys in light and bright colors, using watercolor pencils and put them on the darker flag background.  I'd say the boys are in awe of seeing the flags waving over the big city lights.



Looking for more inspiration using Route 66 or Huck Finn, stop by and see what the other Designers created:

Amazing card, love how he's almost standing off the card (or that's how it looks to me). Love the colors, they really pop against the aqua blue.
