The Wilderness Awaits- Thinking of You :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 

I wanted to share another card that I designed using the RS171 Retro Sketches Challenge along with the Paper Players PP252 Ann's Theme Challenge (The Great Outdoors).
As soon as I saw the theme, I thought of the new stamp set, The Wilderness Awaits  I just love the realistic animal images in this set and for some reason, this elk image seemed to call out- use me- lol!!  

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the Design Team samples as well as their galleries- terrific inspiration from all!

This was a quick, easy card to create- ink the sentiment and elk image using Stāz-On®
Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, color the elk with a Tip Top Taupe marker and AquaPainter™, layer the retired DSP onto Early Espresso and Pool Party cardstock, add the embossed woodgrain panels and frame the image using a stitched die and layering.

Add a clip with some ribbon along with the banner sentiment to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: The Wilderness Awaits, Wetlands

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Stampin’ Write Marker- Tip Top Taupe

Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Pool Party, retired Sweater Weather DSP, This and That Epic Day DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, MFT Stitched Square Die, Hexagon Punch, retired Sycamore Street Pool Party Stitched Satin Ribbon, retired Hodgepodge Hardware Clip, Natural Linen Thread

Thanks again for visiting- stop by again soon for the new SUO Challenge :-)  I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!!

Love the color palatte, and the way the angle of the background papers align with the angle of the elk. Beautiful!

This is a great take on the sketch...I looked at it and ran for the hills! But you managed to pull it off...awesome colors and image for the challenge! We're so glad you played with the Players again this week!

Julie, you rocked the sketch... I was scared of it :-) but you really showed us how versatile it is. The image is perfect for the Paper Players challenge. I love how you colored it and I love the woodgrain element, too. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players again this week
