I'm catching up on my homework for the Summer Camp Card Class. Just when I think this class can't get any better, BAM! It does. They keep raising the bar every day. Yesterday, Kristina made a card that I totally fell in love with. Normally, I don't CASE cards, I like to use them for inspiration and put my own little spin on them. But today, I just had to CASE Kristina's card.
This is the first time I've ever made a circle card. Probably mostly because I don't own a die cutting machine (I know, I'm living in the stone age!). But in watching Jennifer's video from yesterday, I was inspired to use things around the house. So I found a few circular items, traced them, cut them out, and I had all the circles I needed! Of course, die cutting would have been MUCH easier and faster, and I am on the verge of getting one...hopefully soon! I also really wanted to try Kristina's technique for creating the background on her smallest circle. I LOVED how it turned out so thought I would make an attempt myself! I didn't have the gorgeous floral stamp that she did, so I improvised, and used some images from my Paper Smooches Reflections set and embossed them on to water colour paper. The I used the same technique that Kristina used (I love how she calls it mushing!), only instead of distress inks, I used regular dye ink, and it seemed to work okay.
Now I'm off to create some more...hopefully be back later today with something else!
