SUMMER CARD CAMP WEEK 3/DAY 4
Our challenge for this class was to try a different technique or look. Since I usually don't do a lot of layering or edging, I decided to try the vintage look by distressing the panel and sponging the edges. I meant to crinkle the paper before sponging, but forgot--that's how new this style is for me! The same color combo of 2 shades of brown, aqua, and 2 shades of purple have become easier to use.
Following one of the sketches for this week helped me break out of my usual pattern. There are also a lot more layers on this card, thanks to my scrap drawer. I even dug out my button maker for this one, too.
I like how this turned out and will probably try to incorporate more of these techniques and styles in future cards! (Once in awhile...)
