Explore - Dream - Discover MOJO202

Ack!  I think my muse is still on vacation, as I haven't gotten inky in a week, but I did enjoy a wonderful week relaxing at the Lake with my family!  Wanting to play along with this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch 202, (which didn't make the deadline), here's what I came up with using the Huck Finn plate from Artistic Outpost.


The image is stamped in Black Archival on watercolor paper and colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  The edges of all papers are sponged with Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I added Gears in place of the images in the Sketch.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Huck Finn
Card Stock - Watercolor, Black, Ballet Blue
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Markers
Other - Gears, Brads, Ink Blending Tool, Spellbinders Oval Die, The Sticky Thumb Dimensionals

Additional Challenges:
Just Some Lines - Outdoors/Summer, The Corrosive Challenge - Earth Tones

We took a lot of photos from our vacation this year - this is DH's favorite one, we used the self timer on the camera to take a family photo.  In case you are wondering, yes Lou is sitting in the Lawn Chair, or he would have been under water!
