Summer Card Camp Day #4. . . .A Sketch

Hi There!



I've been struggling with the sketches from Summer Card Camp today. I don't know what it is, but I've made three cards and really don't like any of them. This one is better than the other two, so I decided to share it.

Summer Card Camp Day #4 by bdengler4 (Barb)
The circle stamp is a Hero Arts one, exclusively made for Archiver's (AR170.) I added a couple more butterflies so it was similar to the sketch. The orange background was inked with Wild Honey distress ink and splattered with Perfect Pearl water.

I'm looking forward to the next post for camp, which I can view in about 15 minutes. Hopefully I am a bit more inspired by this one!

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

P.S. Not sure why my fonts are changing on this post???? Sorry about that!

Hi Barb. I haven't even had time to try the sketches... but you have done well here. I struggle with colours so this camp will be a huge help ( I hope!) I know there is a heap of inspiration from just looking at what everyone else is doing. Can't wait for todays post.

Great Job! I love the distressed look of this card - that's so hard for me to do!

Sue said...

Wonderful Distress BG, I just love the abandonment of the splotches! Hang in there Barb you cannot expect to deliver ALL the time, don't place so much pressure on yourself you are creating great cards, the camp is more about extending your knowledge than producing perfect cards at this time, be patient it will all come together soon....

Wow I love the inking... I do think it's a lovely card.

Btw just wondering if your hand aches when you do the inking of the whole background coz I sure do. Maybe it's becoz I'm still a newbie at it :P

Lynn said...

Oh...the inking is fabulous and I love the little butterflies. I think we're all more critical on ourselves!

Tanya said...

So pretty! Love the distressing, I agree though I think we are too critical on our own creations!

Joy said...

Gorgeous Barb, I love your take on the sketch, you have mastered it with perfection.

Maureen Morton said...

Barb, this is just beautiful! Don't hesitate. I love the background - very dreamy. And those butterflies are simply perfect. Take a deep breath and hang in there. We tend to be our own worst critics. This is great and so are you!

Heather Maria said...

Beautiful card, Barb! The distressed bg with the sparkle of the perfect pearls is gorgeous! Love the pretty butterflies too!

Barb I just LOVE that splattered background, the pearl shimmer is exquisite.

Karen said...

Great background and the butterfly's are so sweet. I think I missed the sketch, yikes! I have to go back and look at day 4 again. I think that was the day I was on nurse duty, lol. Happy 4th, see you at camp!

This is beautiful Barb. I don't see anything wrong with it, if anything I love the effect that you have on your background. I love the shimmer and shine here. So happy to see that you are having fun with these classes.

Love the shiny finish on your background. Beautiful card.
