 I want to tell you what technique I will be showcasing for the May blog hop ..... drum roll...pppprumppadumadum....faux layers and masking sections.  sorry don't know the fancy names that have been given to this technique but I'm sure you will know once you see my cards. 
This is a great set for those campers in your life or just for making fun cards for both male and females. I guess I like the moose in this set because here he is again.  All coloring was done with prisma color pencils.

This last card is very simple but effective. Hope you enjoyed our little camping trip today. 
Please continue on to Janine's  blog to see what she has in store for you.  Don't forget to leave comments along your journey for a chance to be included in our drawing.  see you tomorrow.
