The 'official' online class begins on Monday, but we were given two Pre-Class Challenges to play with while we wait -- the first being a color challenge:
|(printed piece & vellum copy)|
Next, I cut out three of the boards from polka-dot designer paper and glued them on, which gave more texture/depth. Using a sentiment from the same paper pad, I backed it with more aqua CS, rounded the corners and then added aqua and grey layers before attaching them all to my white card. I know the perfect person to send this simple little card to now that it's done -- a total bonus! ;~)
Paper: PTI White, Smokey Shadow & Aqua Mist CS; Echo Park Dots & Stripes 6x6 pad; WRMK Down the Boardwalk 4x6 pad
Tools: WRMK Corner Chomper (LOVE it!)
As I went to list my supplies, I realized I'd made an entire card with no stamping or dies -- a rarity, but I'm sure that will not be the case for long -- LOL! I think it's good to try lots of different ideas/color combos/sketches and to do no stamping sometimes, just a little paper piecing and letting the fun papers speak for themselves?!
If you're looking for a little 'summer fun' (even though you may not be at a lovely beach -- I'm certainly NOT!), there's still time to join in the fun @ Summer Card Camp 2 -- hope to see you there! Sooo thrilled to learn that my sweet friend, Mary Jo, will be playing along and can't wait to see what she creates along the way!!!
