Have you been joining in on all the fun over at the Summer Card Camp? I hope they run another one soon, it’s been great fun. For those of you that haven’t seen it, basically it’s Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire running card making lessons, techniques and videos, along with some colour inspiration for four weeks.
I thought I would try my hand at different styles in the same colours…
This week’s colours are monochromatic with the addition of red and white.
For my first card (above) , I used one of Kristina's sets with Lawn Fawn’s Critters on the Farm set, plus some brown thickers for the sentiment, a MS punch, strip of chocolate cardstock and some MME Stella & Rose patterned paper all adhered to the kraft card base. I used Copics to colour in the cow and if you look closely you will see I gave her eyelashes! I just LoVe it when you can add a bit more whimsy yourself!!
For my second card I used Hero Arts Flower Swirl Vine stamp. I wanted to create an older style so I simply stamped it in Ranger Distress Ink Vintage Photo and mixing the distress ink with a bit of water I coloured the outer edges of some of the larger flowers. I added some Ranger Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap to age it up a bit and I then added pearls to random centres, matted it onto red cardstock and then mounted that onto brown cardstock which I attached to the base. I stamped the sentiment and then tied around a piece of twine before attaching the panel to the card base with pop dots. To finish I spritzed the whole card with water to try and give it a bit more ageing. I think if I was doing it again I would stamp the sentiment after spritzing so that it looks more crisp rather than a spider crawling across the page look that I have!
Finally a very quick and simple card using Tonic butterflies that I got from over at The Stamp Attic, a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases, some Copics and some little silver pearls. I simply coloured some punched butterflies with my Copics, alternating the colours so that I could layer them as shown. I think they’re quite effective and SUCH a quick card to make too! No more stressing if you run out of time to make a card, this is a definite quick go to card design!
That’s it from me for today. If you’re doing Summer Camp let me know, I’d love to pop by and see how you’ve interpreted the colours this week!
