MFT Camp Create - Glitzy Glitter
I had some time to play along with MFT Camp Create today. It's a summer camp for stampers and has 5 days of challenges! It started on Monday so I am late, but it looked like so much fun that I'm going to try to complete the challenges before the deadline on June 23rd.
The first challenge is Glitzy Glitter. I just got the Beautiful Girl stamp set from MFT and thought that would be a great image to add glitter to, so I used the sweet little girl to make some cards. Here is the first card, I used an Action Wobble so she really dances...so cute!
The scalloped circle behind her is Stitched Mini-Scallop Circle STAX from MFT. I wanted a green edge so I die cut one in purple and one in green and then trimmed along the stitch line of the green one and glued it on! I really like how this looks! I also tried some really simple no-line coloring on this card. I used it to make the flowery background. It looks like patterned paper, doesn't it? The last layer was stamped with Versamark and the Simply Circles background stamp. Here's a close-up...
Glitter is so difficult to photograph, but I got lucky with this shot. Ohhh, ahhh...look at that glitz!!
I always color two of an image when I'm making a card. That way, if I mess up on the first one, I can correct my mistakes on the second one and still end up with something that I can use. This time I was lucky and they both were usable! SO...here is the 2nd card. I used MFT's new Blueprints 29 for this one...love it...a lot!
I used a piece of MFT's Sweet Sunshine 6x6 Paper Pack as a background. It coordinated perfectly with my color scheme! I wasn't sure about the curly-cues on the top of her head. On the first card I colored them like flower vines but on this one, I colored them like curls of her hair...I like them both! Here's the close-up view...
While trying to come up with a way to show how sparkly the glitter looks, I took this photo. It didn't really catch the glitter like I wanted it to, but I liked it so much that I needed to include it.
I know time is short, but I hope my cards made you think about going to MFT's summer camp! They've come up with some fun ideas...and the videos are great! Thanks for stopping by. Have a good weekend :)
