It's Day 3 of the Stamping Sisters winter card camp
and our camp counselor today is: Barb!
Her challenge for us today was to create a card using the
faux tile backsplash technique and O.M.G!
This was fun!
If you'd like to go back and see all the camp cards,
here's the line up of cards and techniques!
Monday/January 24th ~ Jeanette @ Creativeplay
Tuesday/January 25th ~ Kelly @ Sandcastlestamper
Wednesday/January 26th ~ Barb @ inkingintoretirement
Thursday/January 27th ~ Darlene @ Accordingtobijou
On to my card!
Here's my card and then keep scrollin' if you'd like to see
the how/where/when/what and why :)
For my card here, I started with red and pink cardstock
cut with my new Ellen Hudson Color Me Strips die -
which I've had and has been forever in it's package!
From there, I did the technique following Barb's instructions
and wove both the pink and red strips of cardstock from MFT stamps.
But even with double adhesive AND taping the back, my weave moved.
Once it was woven into place,
I clear embossed the front weaved panel
to give it the 'shiny' look - just like a real tile backsplash!
Since my woven panel moved while my eyeballs were elsewhere,
I thunk and thunk some more.
I said to myself ...
"Self! Cover it up!"
"No. one. is. gonna. know."
So, I popped up the panel on the front
with a heart from Hero Arts nesting hearts dies.
The stamp set I used is MFT Stamps Grande Sized Love
and I colored her with my new gifted from Santa copic markers!
Here's a final look:
I hope Barb and the other campers like my card ~
if not, I brought some s'mores!
Surely chocolate and a campfire will make up for it ...
and I'm sure I have a few skits and jokes I can tell!
Thanks for stopping by!
