Each session is taking a clue from art masters, past and present. The first challenge was to choose on of the Master Color Recipes based on famous paintings and create a card. I chose these lovely soft colors in Georgia O’Keeffe’s Blue Flower:

MFT Camp Create – Background Bonanza – Thank You for Hospitality Card

Phew! I didn’t think I’d get caught up on posting today, but I made it. Yay! Thank you all so much for your patience!

So, this is the final post for My Favorite Things Camp Create.

20160721_MFT0

It was a fun week. Hopefully next time I won’t get behind on posting. The final session was Background Bonanza – all about making your own backgrounds. For a long time I’ve wanted to do a tone-on-tone background, so decided to try it with this card. I think it really makes the colors of the bird and white kitty pop:

I giggle at the thought of the kitty providing a perch being viewed as hospitality!

So, here’s the final badge earned and now I have all 5:

MFT Camp Create – Magnificent Masking – Hello, Sunshine Card

Here I am yet again with a card from the next session of My Favorite Things Camp Create

.20160721_MFT0

This session was on Magnificent Masking.

20160721_181541

I masked this two ways… First I used Fineline masking fluid on the stamped images. Toucans are one of my favorite birds (tied with pelicans and hummingbirds). I met several when I lived in South America and they’re quite gregarious. I giggle with him sitting on a pineapple… the fruit of summer – liquid sunshine!

20160721_181815

Then, I used a stencil to mask off the concentric circles representing sun rays.

20160721_181918

Then I sponged two colors of distress inks over the masks.

Here’s the badge earned for this session:

MFT Camp Create – Inlaid Made Easy – Amazing Flamingos Card

I’m back again as I continue posting my cards from My Favorite Things Camp Create.

20160721_MFT0

The next session was Inlaid Made Easy:

20160721_122515

I experimented with a watercolor sunset on the water scene – obviously I need more practice with that. (True story: for a while it looked like one flamingo ate something that didn’t agree with him. hahaha!) Then I die cut out the flamingos and the word Amazing. Then added them back in with foiled and glitter papers. At least it there weren’t too many fiddly little pieces to re-position.

Here’s the badge earned from this creative session:

Who remembers playing with these back in school?

20160214_152429aW

Well, Papertrey Ink put one together with their colors as a fun way to help you pick color combinations. (You can download it for free HERE) Following their instructions, the color combo I came up with was:

20160214_152901aW

Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Pure Poppy. Fortunately, I had cardstock in the Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise colors, so I just added some poppy red embossing and Copic coloring and came up with this sweet little gem:
