Hambo Stamps Harvest Moon


I have a fun Hambo Stamps design team card to share with you today!
I used the rubber stamp Harvest Moon for my image and the rubber stamp sentiment "No Cracks" by Hambo Stamps.  

The Hambo Hoedown starts today too!
The challenge is to choose any technique from the Splitcoaststampers Resources Page to make your Hambo Stamps project. You'll need to list the name of the technique (as SCS labels it) and link the resources page in your blog post. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources

I actually made my card for the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Midweek Throwdown challenge, the theme is a color challenge.

I stamped my image on Copic X Press It and colored with Copic markers.  My grass and lower part of the sky is done using Isoprophyl Alcohol on a Q Tip swab and YG11 & BG000.  I used my cloud template for the clouds and the BG000 marker.  The card layout is Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch #52.  I added the Quickkutz die cut sun to balance the layout as well as three black half pearls.

This was a super fun card to make, the only trouble I had was stamping my sentiment straight - I'm out of practice - after numerous attempts I got it!

I hope you'll have time to check out and play in both challenges this week!

Too fun! I love the summer colors and the layout. As for multiple stamping the sentiment, since it took me three times today to get my challenge card sentiment right, I feel much better knowing I'm not alone. :)

What a fun card! You do an awesome job coloring. (Still one of those things I don't do as a card-maker.) Love all the embossing and your sun is a perfect finishing touch.
