Our Artistic Outpost Design Team Hop this month is Books. I read a lot when I was young, as I look back it was always fiction...wonder why that was? I had the entire collection of the Bobbsey Twins, among others, but that by far was my favorite. To this day I still read mysteries. I do remember reading one book in particular that really drew me in, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. My brother is almost 4 years younger than I, so I shared with him the times and the travels. We would sit for hours dreaming about floating away on a raft somewhere....having our own adventures and fun. Making this card today took me back to those times.
Huck was stamped on a piece from the stash drawer, and I bleached out his skin. This was attached to a book page. The background has been stamped with several word stamps from the same set. If you are not familiar with our Storybook stamps, this would be the time to check them out. They are a fabulous array of childhood memories.
Be sure to visit the rest of the AODT to see what book they choose to share with you today.
