Where are my Parks and Rec fans at? Parks and Rec is by far the favorite show for my husband and me, I’m not even sure how many times we’ve watched the show.
The stamp I’ve used today was also a hand carved by Audra at Kindred Stamps. I had a hard time choosing a Ron Swanson quote, there are SO many good ones. I decided to choose a typical typewriter font, being as it is a Ron Swanson quote and printed it off of my computer on my Neenah Cardstock in 80 lb. Because I couldn’t see through my stamp’s block I printed several quotes off, so that I’d have multiple attempts at lining the stamp up correctly.
I used my Gansia Tambi watercolors to watercolor the background after I had embossed it using a My Favorite Things stamp and clear embossing powder, hopefully, it gives the feel of water as I know Ron Swanson likes to fish. The die is from Technique Tuesday and I absolutely love it, I use this tree set so frequently.
To round the corners, because I don’t have a corner rounder, I used my We R Memory Keeper’s Envelop Puch. The trees were glued on using Ranger Multi Matte and the sentiment was adhered using an office stapler! When everything was done I taped it all onto some Neenah Solar White in 110lb.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post! If you love Parks and Rec like we do, let us know! 😀
