Camp Create – Day One Glitter


I am so excited to play along with My Favorite Things and their Camp Create!  I LOVE the camping theme and decided for each card everyday I would only stick to camping themes.   I have some wicked cool outdoor paper from Carta Bella and from October Afternoon.

Happy Camper glitter

Boy did I struggle with this card.  I first copic colored the tent and the fire and then masked them.  Then I used distress inks on the card and then no matter how long I waited, the darn card would not dry.  I used a heat gun, I waited…and waited.  Heat gun again.  ugh!  Everytime I put embossing powder on it stuck to the entire card.    Finally with a paint brush and some determination I was able to finish.   I did not have that wonderful Elizabeth Crafts double sided adhesive, nor her glitter.  So I had to make do with what I had.   It was very hard to get the smaller stars to stick to the never drying damp paper.  Glitter everywhere and a damp card.  Sort of like camping, a damp tent and smoke everywhere.   Welcome to Camp Create!!!!  LOL


But I finished and earned my badge!!!  Whooo Hoooo!


Thanks for Looking!!!!
