Camp Create: Spectacular Shakers

Here comes my take on the MFT Camp Create: Spectacular Shakers.



Because I wanted to have enough space to fill in thicker elements, I made an inside shaker card:


For the front, I used the adorable SY foxes and a big sentiment die-cut from blue cardstock. When opening the card, you'll find this:


Here are the cute mice having a fun party :)
All images are colored with Copics.



I'll share a video of the card in action on Instagram.

Thank you for stopping by!

Camp Create: Wonderful Watercolor

I am back again with another card for MFT Camp Create. This one's for Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor.

And because I created my own background, I can enter this to this week's SSSW Challenge, too.

My new favorite medium for watercoloring is Distress Oxide ink. Here is what I came up with:


I taped a panel of watercolor paper to my working surface and, using the Ray of Light Stencil, applied various Distress Oxide inks with an ink blending tool. Now I used a watertank brush and "colored" over the rays to create this look. After everything was dry, I removed the tape and adhered the panel to my card base.
Then I stamped the images onto white cardstock, colored everything with Copics, die-cut the elements and adhered them to the card with foam tape.
After I had stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, I trimmed the strip and adhered it. Finally, I added matching rainbow sequins.


Can't get enough of these inks with water :)

Have a wonderful day everybody, thanks for stopping by!

Camp Create: Remarkable Resist

Hello! I made a card for the new MFT Camp Create today. This one is for Day 2: Remarkable Resist.

I played around and this happened:


I started with a panel of white cardstock and stamped + heat-embossed the white contours of the butterflies. Then I applied Distress Oxide Inks with an ink blending tool. Now I used the solid parts of the butterflies, inking these with Versamark ink, spritzing them with water and then stamping them to create that transparent/vellum look. I love when playing around creates new effects I didn't expect :) I am sure someone will soon make a video using this technique!
After I had added droplets of water, I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of vellum, adhered it to the panel and put the panel onto a matching card base.
Finally, I added matching sequins.


Have a wonderful day everybody, thanks for stopping by!
