|Card made with PTI dies|
I have a card with no coloring this week for you - something usual for me! I have had fun with Summer Card Camp 2 over at Online Card Classes, and this is a card I made on Day 3. It uses the colors for the week and one of their suggested sketches. One of the techniques I was playing around with was the look of watercolors. With no watercolor paints in my house, I used things I had on hand - my old Stampin' Up! markers and watercolor paper. The result was a fun afternoon of experimenting to get the look I was after - such as laying down some color and then spritzing the paper with water, or coloring and using a wet brush, or spritzing and then coloring on the wet paper. At one point, I had about 10 sheets of paper drying on the floor of my craft room! (Nice to be on vacation and have loads of time!)
The other thing I learned from the summer camp is making a "custom" chipboard piece (the present). All you have to do is die cut 4-6 extra shapes and glue them on top of each other. The patterned paper goes on top, and then the side edges were colored with a BG11 Copic marker and viola - dimension!
