This time of year always finds me itchin' for a road trip and adventure. Basically, I'm looking for anything that will take my mind off the heat of August, something different than hiding out in my igloo (read: the one air conditioned room in the house).

That's where the inspiration for this week's card came from. I'd love nothing more than a long drive up into the mountains, top down on the car, music blasting... *sigh*

I began the background with a wash of Twinkling H2Os to give the sky and sun some sparkle. I used a Derwent watercolor pencil for the road and washed over that as well. I stamped the car using StazOn ink and colored that in with Twinkling H2Os as well. I used orange craft ink for the sun face and  Distress Ink for the trees. I topped the whole thing off with my sentiment of the month... "Wanderlust."

Then, just because I'm so desperate that I'm willing to take whatever mode of transportation is available, I did the following card.

Where will your imagination take you? Happy Crafting!!!

RubberMoon stamps used:

Moon Face
