Summer adventure card

As a winner of retro rubber challenge I got this great opportunity to join as a guest designer for the next challenge!

The theme for this challenge is Summer. And it was really challenging for me, because I don't have any summer stamps. I would usually just draw something for the specific theme, but this time I had to use a rubber stamp of course. :) Luckily I have a lot of crafty friends so I acquired a stamp print from one of them, which was perfect for the summer card.

 I don't usually go to any exotic location in summer, I would just mostly camp with my friend.. by the lake...in the forest... So I thought keeping my card in this spirit would be nice.

 I used aquarelle pencils to color the stamp and the background map detail. Also used the dino footprints paper, because tracking seemed to be the thing, the guy on the stamp is doing. :D And of course I kept it in the colors of nature.

Thanks for stopping by and I would like to encourage you to also join this summer challenge at

  4. Oh my gosh!! this image could very well be a picture of my 9 year old grandson Steven Michael!!! When he was about 6 we gave him a full gear outfit to go fishing with his dad, from the hat to the tack box, compass, flash light and some adorable fish lures, no hooks, mind you.
    Such an endearing image Martina, perfect choice of colors for this little fisher's outfit.
