Mushroom Lane Fire Station ~
This stamp was sent to me by Becky, one of the CHF gals who actually visited the farm where all CHF stamps are made. A challenge was issued. You know the story, challenge me.....well I have to give it a go.
Mushroom Lane is a funky, whimsical line (unmounted or wood mount) that CHF has had for a some time. It's unlike anything I own or stamp like, but it was actually quite fun to color in with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I merely followed the insert from the packaging for color reference.
I tried and tried to come up with a coordinating sentiment...anyone? I thought that "never, never, never give up" a sentiment from one of the Mona Lisa Moments sets could work if you were sending this to someone in the fire academy....would have to be a gal though, not sure a guy would appreciate the card. I think flames would need to be involved to interest a guy. *wink*
Remember, you can always click on any picture and enlarge it to see the details.
Anyway, challenge finished. What do you think?
