Here is my project:

I used the stamp sets, The Great Outdoors and Deer Friends to create this scene.

To start, I used the largest die in the Fancy Frame Dies set to cut a panel out of Neenah Solar White 80 lb.

Next, I stamped the bear, fire and bunny with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and masked them off so I could work on the background with Distress Inks.

Then I heat embossed the sentiment by stamping in Versamark Ink, sprinkling with Gold Fine Detail Embossing Powder from Ranger and melting it with my heat tool.

To begin the background, I blended Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean and Black Soot for the sky. For the ground, I blended Peeled Paint, Forest Moss and Black Soot.

I colored the images using various Copic markers and I used Copic markers to add a little bit of shading under the chair and the rabbit. 

I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the fire and above the fire, I used a Wink of Stella Glitter pen in red to make red dots look like embers or sparks from the fire.

On the marshmallows, I brushed Clear Wink of Stella and added Glossy Accents over top.

After scribbling some trees in the background and adding stars with a white gel pen, I was finished with the panel and ready to add it to a card base. Since the sentiment says s'mores, I decided to have fun with it and layer the papers in s'mores fashion. Desert Storm, Solar White, Dark Chocolate and a Desert Storm card base.
