Summer Card Camp/Week 2, Day 5

There's a lot going on here, thanks to our classes this week:  the color combo, the fancy fold and overlap, the ink carving and the base.

Starting with the blue flowers, I inked them on a blue Kaleidacolor pad so that the centers would be light and the edges dark.  Then I "carved" the ink to create the white lines radiating from the center. (Sorry, you have to take the class to find out how...)  I used Versamark ink on green cs for the leaves.  The greeting is from my pre-stamped folder, and was just the right color for this week's assignment.

Next, I chose the dsp from a pad of recycled paper by DCWV.  Using the red for a background on the top part, I also cut out two of the circles for the flower centers.  After assembling the upper part of the card, I cut a strip for the bottom which included the cute little beaver and snail.  The red bird was cut out separately and attached above the greeting.

As you can see in the next photo, I added a stem and flower that would show up on the inside.  When all was done, I mounted the card on a gray base.  Lots of new ideas were used on this one fun card!
