SCC2, Week 3, Day 2


                          

I can't believe that there are only a couple of days left in Summer Card Camp! It's been busy, but fun. For today's cards, I used Jennifer's layout at a guideline for my first card, and Sarah's ideas for my second card. I still want to do a third card, so I can try Betsy's design paper technique, but the weather is great, and groceries need to be bought!
On this first card, I used copper embossing powder on the flourishes and the sentiment. I used two layers for the flourish, as was suggested. I also did some leaves and heat embossed the tips with holographic embossing powder for some sparkle. For the purple, I added two birds and a heart above the sentiment. The browns are the copper embossing powder, as well as the bird's nest :)

For this card, I used Sarah's idea of partial cover plate die cuts. For this one, I had to sneak in a bit of the aqua colour, so the first layer of the flower is inked in Aqua Mist, followed by Winter Wisteria and then Royal Velvet (PTI). The sentiment is also stamped in Royal Velvet.


Thanks for looking and I appreciate your comments!
