I'm on vacation, so can I tell you how excited I am that it's the first day of Online Card Classes' Summer Card Camp?!? I can spend the whole day in my craft room if I want!!
The Summer Card Camp week's color focus for week 1 and a few sketches to play with were revealed today. The featured colors are: white, turquoise, red, yellow and orange; the challenge to use four of the five colors.
For my card, I chose a digi from the Dilly Beans Blog by artist Megan K. Suarez. Megan's work is new to me and I quickly found four adorable images to buy. I adapted her angel by removing the wings and giving her a full eyebrow so I could create a Frida Kahlo card. I used clear embossing powder for my Woodland Park background stamp (by October Afternoon) and then rubbed red, yellow and turquoise inks over it to create my background. Farida is colored with Copics and cut out. I created the words on my computer using Courier New font and then doodled boxes around them. The diagonal yellow paper is popped out in front of Frida.
This isn't my usual style, but I love how she turned out!
