The new palette for Week 2 of the Summer Card Camp 2011 was released today for us to use to make a
I had a little trouble deciding what to do...should I just use various paper, punches, stamps, inks? What to do...what to do... Sometimes the hardest part is getting started. Sometimes the ideas in the head do not compute to something worth a toot on paper! But sometimes it DOES all come together! :)
I decided I wanted to use this cute Margarita Moments stamp set by Unity which I bought recenlty but have never used. So that gave me a starting point but it took a while to decided a card design. This is what I came up with, though:
I used my Mat Stack die from Paper Trey Ink and used one of the Mat Stack Collection 3 stamps and tucked it under the orangey cardstock strip. I stamped the margarita glass in black used some colored pencils to color it and used Gamsol to blend. I added a little glitter to the rim and some glossy accents to make it nice and shiny! I stamped the sentiment on the bottom with Versamark and then used some Ultra Detail White Embossing Powder with my heat gun.
The supplies I used...and YES...everything I used I had on hand...included:
Hero Arts Sunshine Layering Paper
Artist's Loft pencils/Gamsol
Ultra Detail Embossing Powder
Hero Arts Poppy Chalk Ink
VersaFine Onyx ink
Hero Hues Flowers
I think it's a nice happy little card. And it makes me thirsty for a nice frozen salt on the rim 'rita! Yum!
