HA, and you thought I was slacking. I managed to make two more cards for the current Online Card Class: Summer Card Camp 2. I took some of the examples from both days and made them my own.
Here's the first card:
No, that's not dirt or an ink schmear at the top, though normally it might be. I used SU Naturals White for the card base and it's an unfortunate natural spec placement.
I think I've combined Kristina's and Shari's techniques for the stripes. The striped piece started out as trying to be like Shari (did a whole card front), but I failed, and salvaged part of it to use for the striped element in Sketch 2.
The flutterby and sentiment are embossed in black, and the flutterby was colored using Gelatos. I scribbled two of them onto an acrylic block, spritzed them, and used them like water color paint on the wings. When I was done with the assembly, I went back and filled in the dots with a blue glaze pen. I like the pop of bright color with all the other washed-out colors.
Because of my fear of white space, I used a Hero Arts embossing folder on the layer so it didn't disappear into the card base.
Here's my second card:
For this one I was trying to be like Laura, and I used
The yellow paper made me think about my half-used pack of Woolies, so I pulled out the dog and drew a line on the yellow paper strip to ground him. The pieces of paper look like they are raised up with dimensional adhesive, but they aren't; I simply didn't stick down that side. The woof was made with my Dymo labeler.
I'm off to link to the class galleries. Thanks for stopping by!
