Mid Summer's Night Dream

Hello again,
I wanted to share a really fun project with you today. It's one of my favorite cut files from Mary's kits are amazing and they cut perfectly every time.  I love making 3D items with my Silhouette machine. I usually cut the pieces out of white cardstock and add my own color with distress inks or copic markers (and rubber stamps of course.)

This vintage Shasta trailer is so cute. I want one in real life, especially if it was parked on the white sandy beaches of some exotic tropical place. A rogue traveller can only dream...
Simon Says Stamp is featuring a summer challenge this week. You can check out the link here:

I inked all the bottom panels with Picked Raspberry and  Mustard Seed distress inks. I love how the two colors combine to create a juicy orange color. Then I stamped over top with a great funky flower patten from Indigo Blue. 
The green strip is inked with Mowed Lawn D.I. The same colors were inked on the umbrella and chairs to give a cohesive look to my "glamping" scene.
The top panels were embossed with the notebook embossing folder from Sizzix.

After i uploaded this picture, I noticed my "brake light" fell off. LOL
I made a couple of propane tanks and a front hitch for my little Shasta. I used a piece of cardboard tube and wrapped it with paper. I think they turned out pretty great.
Thanks for looking today, hope you enjoyed my mid summer's night dream trailer.

  4. Hi Laurie. I followed your message at Urban back to here. I think this is the cutest think ever. I've always wanted one. Of course mine would be aqua, LOL.
