Let's get started !!
Here's the Design Team
Enjoy the Hop. Come on back tomorrow for more creative fun!! 

Yesterday you saw this card because the Chuck Paper Doll is behind the hunting outfit and today I would like to explain how I created the card.  I printed off digi camouflage paper from Doodle Pantry for the strips and a large piece for Chuck's hunting outfit.  I dry brushed gesso on the larger piece of camouflage paper because I wanted the black outline to be emphasized and then heat embossed Chuck's outfit with black embossing powder.   I colored in his boots.   Same gessoed paper and heat embossing for the sentiment.  The frame around Chuck was dry embossed with a crackle embossing folder.

Have you ever dry brushed gesso on vibrant card stock or paper to tone it down a bit?  
It creates such an interesting effect.  Try it!
