Hello! As you may have seen from my last post and YouTube video, there are some really fun s’more-themed products in this month’s release from A Colorful Life Designs. I fell in love with the Campfire stencil because although it’s great for a s’mores card, it can be used for other things too, like Halloween.

On a piece of Kraft cardstock, I inked the stencil with Distress Oxides in Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso, Walnut Stain, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, and Candied Apple. With a wet brush, I went over the cut edges of the log to oxidize them. The marshmallow was done with a Signo Gel Pen and then I inked Mustard Seed on top for a glow. I inked around the edges of the panel with Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso.
I absolutely love when a fire crackles and sparks, and I wanted to emulate that here. I flicked on metallic gold watercolor from the Kuretake Starry Colors (I used #902) just over the flames. It gave the exact effect I was going for. I stamped the sentiment, which is from the S’mores stamp set from A Colorful Life Designs, with VersaFine Clair Ink in Fallen Leaves. I mounted the panel on to a brown card base.
I love how this came out. Those gold flecks are everything. I don’t know about you, but I am really in the mood for some s’mores now.
