The Journey is the Reward

Does this make you want to take a vacation?  That's what it makes ME want to do!  I love this Stampendous stamp.  The scene just makes me happy.  I used Copic markers to color it in, but I think water color pencils would have worked well too.

I used the Large Simply Scallops die to make the edging.  I stacked two together and inked the edges.  I really like the effect.  I ran a strip of fabric tape over the seam to mask it.

I thought the card needed an extra pop, so I cut a Rosette and I think it did the trick.  Yes, it is a little bulky - but I will probably hand deliver this card, so I am ok with that.

And remember the Double Ended Banner die from yesterday?  Well, here it is again.

The July 4th holiday will be here really soon.  I think I am getting in the mood for sure now.

One more Stampendous card tomorrow.  I'll see you then.

Susie, this stamp always reminds me of Lake Chatauqua in Western New York. I love how you colored it & I love your rosette! It's a great card!
