My project today shows a couple of different Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company sets to go along with our featured set Get Reel.  I remember growing up going fishing with my dad every summer while in the Indian Guides program.  This set brings back so many memories of camping, fishing, hiking, and so on with my dad, so I tried to capture some of those memories in my card for you today.

I started out by stamping my main image from Get Reel in memento tuxedo black onto MFP snow storm smooth card stock before taking the Ice and Snow stamp set and inking only part of the tree tops from the sets main image to use as cattails.  Then I took some color crayons and colored some of the "cattails" brown and the water ripples white before sponging & stippling various Tim Holtz distress and Adirondack inks to get my pond with an early morning sky look.  Once I was satisfied with the ink coverage, I stamped the saying from Get Reel and then the bird trio from the new Scenic Selections a couple of times before layering on card stock and adding some Making Memories black baby brads.  My final touches were to stamp the rocks and trees from Scenic Selections onto scrap snow storm smooth card stock, color with prismacolor markers, cut out and then pop up using mini pop dots.  For just a little sparkle, I highlighted some of the grasses with a green Copic Spica pen.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team's blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
