Camping by Starlight

Can you believe I have had Loads of Fun since it came out over a year ago.....and I haven't inked it up until today?!?!?!?!?  I absolutley loved the camper image.  I thought it would make perfect cards for my Dad, he has a beautiful motor home and like to camp when he gets a chance.  So, I took today's mojo moday sketch to make him a father's day card.  Here is the sketch:

Looks like a great sketch, huh?  I'm sure I will come back to this one again and again.
Wanna see what I did with it??

First....I want to say I am sorry about the yellowish picture......I couldn't get it right today, for some reason.

I did add two elements on the bottom left hand corner - I hope I am not banned for life for that!  lol!!  They are a modern label punch cut in half accented with silver brads
The card base is bashful blue. The designer series paper is from Travel Journal.  I absolutely love that map image!!  It is matted with night of navy.  The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes.  I stamped it with garden green ink and adhered it down like a banner.  The elements on the left hand side are strips of night of navy card stock accented with silver brads.
The main image is from Loads of Love.  I stamped it with black staz on ink onto watercolor paper.  I colored, with a blender pen,  the camper image with classic reinkers: bashful blue, night of navy, marina mist, so saffron, basic grey and silver shimmer paint.  I then placed a mask of the camper over it and spongeds the night sky with night of navy and the ground with garden green.  The stars in the sky were added with a white gel pen.  I then matted it with a torn layer of bashful blue and a layer of night of navy.

Did you really think I forgot about the inside???

Now, really....did you think I forgot??? did I do?
