Huck Finn

Happy Monday and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Over the weekend, I received my first ever order of Pan Pastels and could not wait to play!  Wish I had ordered some of the tools with handles, but that will happen next time!  Interesting how projects come together as I was looking at the "Quote and Quotables" sentiment and decided to make a somewhat stormy sky background with my new PP. 
Of course I knew that the ship in the "Huck Finn" collections would look awesome in the background, so I lined this up stamped with Black Archival, allowing some room for that adorable Huck!  The young lad was stamped and then colored with Distress Inks and fussy cut.  I decided Huck would go so solo this time, so cut around the pup!  Stamped and torn the words and added a compass.

Thank you for visiting me today and as always your comments are so appreciated!  Just a reminder that there is still a couple of days to join in the "April Referral Program" at Artistic Outpost!   Enjoy the week!

Fabulous, Terry... can hardly believe that's your first go with the PPs! The sky is wonderfully ominous, and you're so right about how good it looks with the Huck stamps... perfect sentiment too!
