Summer Card Camp 2011 Day Two

It is day 2 of the Summer Card Camp. Today's class was a window card based on a video from Jennifer McGuire. She showed us lots of new techniques to create our cards.

After a slow start, I think my recycling bag is full of my rejected ideas, I came up with this card. Jennifer's card had a large stamped flower that she colored with markers. Well, I have small flower stamps and my markers didn't work very well (I guess I need some new ones).  So I had to come up with another idea.

Here is what I did: I stamped my little flowers with a VersaMark Watermark stamp pad and then embossed them with Zing embossing powder. I hung them inside the window with thread and then backed them with a piece of transparency so they wouldn't flip around. I drew dots around the window with my Signo pen and added some bakers twine to the sentiment. 

The papers are from Basic Grey and Bazzill. The stamps are from Lawn Fawn.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow's class will bring.

What a darling window you made! Love the detail around the frame and your pattern paper is beautiful. Looking forward to more cards during our "camping" experience!

Thanks ladies.

Lynne it is an online class. I'm not sure if they are still taking signups, but you can find a link on Jennifer McGuire's or Kristina Werner's blogs.
