I saved my favorite card for last. I ADORE the new Lantern sets, and this Little Lantern felt so rustic to me that I thought I'd create an outdoor scene with it. We're avid campers and my son just moved out of state, so I thought this sentiment, from the Light of the World Sentiments set, paired with the rustic Little Lantern, would be perfect to remind him that he's always welcome back home.
To get the patina look on the lantern, I used the "rock~n~roll" technique. I stamped the image with Toffee Crunch Memento ink first, and followed with some "rocking and rolling" in Teal Zeal Memento ink. That's it, and I love the worn look.
I used a huge variety of inks for the background that will be listed at the bottom.
Can you see a mountain silhouette in the background? (I know I covered a lot of it with the trees.) I used the silhouette from the Way Out West set, and then used some torn copy paper for the bottom.
The trees, post and rabbit are from a diecut set called Rustic Sign & Trees by Cottage Cutz.
That's it for today's card. I hope you've enjoyed the sneak peeks and have been a little bit enabled. ;) I know I can't resist Waltzingmouse stamps!!
