Huck Finn Travels to Bloggers Challenge and SSSS!!

I know, long time no blog.  Trying to keep the arm less active, but my new stamp sets arrived yesterday from Artistic Outpost and that was that!  I did get two of the plates precut, so no strain there!  When I saw the new releases, I had to have them all!  At Bloggers Challenge, Lisa, has us doing a sketch challenge and Simon Says Stamp and Show has us Distressing!  Today, Huck Finn was calling out to play and I thought he would work so well with the new papers from Tim Holtz line!  So what do you think?  Do the papers work well with the stamped image and sentiment?  I also used some words from the set along the background paper.  Oh, I colored the image with chalks and then did a light matte spray to set.  All edges are distress, because we like that look!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Thank you for the visit!
