Summer Card Camp 2 - Week 3 Day 5

Week 3 Day 5: Additional Color Combinations

This was the last day of Summer Card Camp 2 and also the day I was waiting for! The color combo I chose & the inspiration piece from Kristina Werner were perfect. I immediately new exactly what i wanted to do. I did have some trouble with the copic coloring - I had never done black & white (with greys) before so it took me a few tries. I love this card. I am so glad this last week of card camp turned out better than week 2!

Week 2 Day 3: Inspiration from Guest Artists

By the time I made this card for week 2 I was frustrated with the colors & sketches & inspirations. Nothing seemed to be turning out right & I was not inspired . So I quickly threw this card together.  Not sure why but I like this card. Definitely not my style or colors but it was simple. I stopped making cards for week 2 after this card and hoped that week 3 would be better.

Week 2 Day 2: Heat Embossing Techniques

I really did not like how this card turned out. It may have been better without the inking around the embossing. Also the card warped alot from all the embossing and that really bugs me!

Week 2 Day 1: Colors and Sketches

Summer Card Camp 2 - Week 3 Day 4

Week 3 Day 4: Try Something New Challenge

I tried a few new things for this card. I used the first card sketch on this one. This is not my usual style but I really liked it. I used embossing paste with a stencil then sprayed it with different spray inks, I used alcohol ink to color the pearl strand purple, and I also used white instead of using brown to distress.

 Week 3 Day 3: Inspiration from Guest Artists

I really liked Kim Jacksons card today and really wanted to try that card sketch. I think it came out really cute. I love the Line Up stamp by Kira Nichols from Stampotique Originals.

 The die & stamped sentiment are from Simon Says Stamp.

Week 3 Day 2: Die Cutting Techniques

I finally got around to posting the cards I made this week for Summer Card Camp 2. I heat embossed all the dies which was not easy & very messy. I added the stars because when it was done the purple tree made it look like a night scene to me. Even though the card turned out OK, I don't think I will be doing that again.
