Out of Focus: Michelle

When I was given this challenge. I had another group of pictures in mind...They were actually taken by my daughter. BUT when I was working on my Fawn Hollow Farms page from last months, Scrappy Style. I found this picture. It was the only one I had of my husband finally relaxed and doing something he loves, fishing. BUT he hardly ever gets to do go! If I am right this is the last time he went fishing for himself and the peace of it. Yup, been about 5 years...The last fishing trip involved a little boy who hooked his hat and knocked his sunglasses into the stream!

I wanted to use this stamp set I had that I have yet to use. So, green cardstock and a few scraps were all I needed. Stamped the images directly on the cardstock. On some scrap cream I stamped the clouds & rocks. I also did a technique called second generation stamping. All you do is ink up your stamp, stamp it once and then stamp again. The second image is lighter due to having less ink, but they blend beautifully. I did the same for the cattails, directly on the cardstock. Then I fussy cut the rocks and clouds, pop dot up two of the darker clouds and placed the second generation cloud behind to show distance.
Try it and see what you can create!
Michelle
