Week 3 new colours



Good morning friends,

Today's card is using the colours from week 3 of the Card Camp. I am rather behind, just don't know who is stealing my time...LOL.


This card was made for the Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge. I decided to use the colours from card camp. We were to use only stamps, any kind, rubber, digital, but no DP. A real challenge!!!
Here is what I have done.

Paper: Card is all Bazzil...brown, cream and taupe.
Image: Great Impressions, a local company. Firstly I used a piece of mesh and rubbed over that with a Colour box chalk - Alabaster, all over the brown card for a background. I then stamped the image twice with Versafine Vintage Sepia, and cut out the dragonfly from the second one. Coloured that with fired brick distress pad and brushed some Twinkling H20.. garnet over, just for a bit of glimmer. Mounted that with 3D squares.
Sentiment also stamped with the same inkpad onto a piece of tapue card and trimmed with a fancy edge scissors.

Hi Ursula - I think you are doing great and you picked the perfect colors. For me, this is a hard week and as these colors are not typically I use, but that's what makes it even MORE of a challenge!!

I'm so happy I took this workshop and totally LOVE it!! It's been wonderful and I hope they'll continue to have more in the future!!!

See you at Camp!! :)

You are so creative. Everyting I've seen that you have made is just wonderful. I'm not familiar with Twinkling H20. Will have to explore that item.

Pretty Dragonfly card. Especially like the detail work on the Dragonfly image.

Outstanding job, Ursula. If everyone had your talent all the DP companies would go out of business.

What a lovely card Ursula! I too have this stamp but don't use it often enough. You have done a great job with this card - like all your other creations :-)
Have a great day!
