Global Design Project - Theme Challenge #gdp063

I love the Theme for this weeks Global Design Project #gdp063
We are going on an 'Adventure', and I know my style of adventure is not necessarily everyone's 'cup of tea'. 
My family and I love back to nature; caravaning & camping, depending on the Season - and this week I have used one of the cutest stampsets and it reminds me of a little holiday we had a few years back....

My 'Dream' Caravan. My dream 'Stamp-a-van'! 
Could you imagine a craft retreat within this divine caravan - beside the ocean? I could! 
The background is a wash of 'Stampin' Write Markers' onto a 'Clear Block Size 'E' - 'Pear Pizazz', 'Crumb Cake', 'Daffodil Delight' for the sand & sun, 'Marina Mist' & 'Soft Sky'. 
Colour straight onto the Block with the markers, then spritz with a 'Stampin' Spritzer' filled with water, and stamp the block straight onto 'Shimmery White Cardstock'
Wait until dry to stamp the sun onto the 'Daffodil Delight'.
*My card measures 17.8cm x 11.4cm (scored at 8.9cm) or 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" (scored at 3 1/2")

I stamped onto 'Very Vanilla' Cardstock, and stamped onto other pieces of cardstock and fussy-cut the accents using 'Pool Party', 'Smoky Slate', 'Basic Gray' cardstock for the tyre, 'Peekaboo Peach' cardstock for the Bunting & 'Calypso Coral' for the reflector lights. The windows are fussy-cut from 'Shimmery White' cardstock.


This is where my inspiration for my 'Adventure' themed card came from... 

Back in April 2011, we took our little boys for a weekend away on our first caravaning trip, staying in my friends caravan. There were Kangaroos, and Rainbow Lorikeets and the lake, and the ocean! An Aussie weekend of bliss.
