Summer Camp!

I always loved summer camp as a kid, so I was happy to go to MFT Camp Create.  Day One's Creative Challenge is Glitzy Glitter--right up my alley--& the video is great! Easy decision of which MFT die to use--the wonderful Poinsettia.  
Elizabeth Craft glitter is my favorite--smooth & sparkly when burnished. I used Regal Red, Sweet Basil & Champagne. The sentiment is also from MFT. Think I'll make some more of these in different colors.  Yah--earned my first badge!

I skipped day 2 for now--hope that doesn't put me in detention--haha.  Day Three's Creative Challenge is Wonderful Watercolor & there's another great video!  I pulled out my first MFT stamp set, Spring.  I've used the sentiment, but never the pretty branch.  
I stamped in PTI Classic Kraft & watercolored with my Zigs, which I also used for the splatters.  The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia & then I spritzed the panel with Shimmer Spritz.  I made a smooshed background & then a blended background--neither looked good. Finally realized it just needed to be a kraft card. 2nd Badge earned & hope I'll have a chance to get some more!
