V C Rocks Blog Hop #2

Welcome to blog hop #2 for V C Rocks 2012
I hope you enjoyed Carolyn's Sharkas  blog that you just came from: www.inkingthenightaway.blogspot.com

Here is my card.....
I made a camo vest to share with you and to give my sweet hubby for Father's Day.
I hope you like it.




Stamps: Lovely as a tree
Paper: Old olive, very vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso, Soft Suede
Acc: scoring tool, brads, twine, large oval punch

I cut a piece of Old Olive in half, placed it on the scoring board and scored on the landscape side at 2 1/8 turn and score at 2 1/8 again. Fold on score lines.  I used the large oval punch for the armholes and the neck of the vest.  I used my scissors to trim the bottom and the neck. I sponged all my ink colors onto the vest until I liked it and then started to randomly stamp the tree, oak leaf and the smaller leaf.  Added my brads and the twine. Also added a small piece of vanilla inside with my own personal thoughts for my wonderful husband. I know he will like it very much. Hope you do too.

Thanks for droppin by and hope you enjoy the next stop on the hop...

This is so cute and with such great texture. Remember when we used to wear vests and they were so comfortable. I think I even have a few left in the closet to wear to silly parties.
