After a couple of extraordinarily busy weeks (months??) at work, hubby and I decided to take off for the weekend for our first wedding anniversary. The destination of choice was a lovely green camping spot at Big River in the Victorian High Country, which we departed for late on Friday afternoon.
We set up camp in the dark, and were joyous the next morning to see sunbeams breaking through the early morning mist, and steam rising up off the beautiful river.
Here's a view towards the river from our campsite - early morning sunlight filtering through the trees.
Saturday proved to be a perfectly summer day, and whilst Tony went off for a drive to Marysville, I got out my small bag of stamping supplies and stamped up a storm beside the river.
I made a good 12 or 15 cards, all the same pattern but different colours - and I had pre-cut most of the cardstock at home before we left . . . I came up with the design earlier last week whilst making a birthday card for my lovely friend Di. I liked the finished result so much, I decided to do a heap more.
I have used "Just Believe" stamp set, with Crumb Cake card and Soft Suede ink and the background is stamped with "En Francais" then sponged around the edges. The main image is inked with markers to allow the different coloured flowers.
The butterfly is cut out separately and mounted over the stamped image - saves you cutting out the legs and antenna's then!
So, as you can see, I really was on "stamp camp" and had a couple of very productive hours in the gorgeous sunshine, with the river soothingly bubbling along behind me!
I'll be back later in the week with some more of my i-scrap layouts to share with you!
Take care, Kathryn.
