CHF Summer Challenge meets MMSC7

More multitasking going on in this post. I thought about waiting until tomorrow to post - but then thought if blogger gives me issues, I'll miss the deadline for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. If you haven't been to the MMSC Blog, I encourage you to take a look, there's some great contests for participating in their sketches.

I created this card using MMSC7, and combined it with the Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Stamp Star Designer Contest - read more details here. I enjoy using my CHF images, and have a wish list, so thought I'd play along for a chance to win some prizes or get a discount on my wish list. This weeks challenge is Color it: Use your favorite medium whether it is ink, markers, pencils or chalk - we want to see you color what you have stamped.

For my coloring, I used the Pastel Chalk Detailing Technique from a past TJNL, using the Thomas Kinkade stamp It Doesn't Get Much Better from Cornish Heritage Farms. My 13YO tied a bunch of flies for me sometime ago, and gave them to me in case I wanted to use them on my cards - as you can see it came in handy for today's post. I tied on some authentic fly line from an old fly real I have that belonged to my grandfather, and used glue dots to hold it in place.
