I am so happy that there is one more session of MFT Camp Create! They have such fun challenges and great inspiration.  Day 1 is Monochromatic Magic.  I tell you, it was real hard not to put in a bit of orange and red.  Anyway, I like the way it turned out; and this is about as monochromatic as  I can go.

Stamps:  MFT Cheesecloth and Harvest Mouse
Dies:  MFT coordinating dies, Stitched Square and SSS

Ruff Day

Hello friends.  I have another card for the SSS Wednesday Challenge and the SSS Flickr Challenge #50.    This time I used the adorable SSS stamp set "You are Pawesome."  I had fun with this one.  I love that sweet little dog.  I added glossy accents to his nose because all dogs have wet noses!  I also used the HA "Clouds" stamp for part of the bubble.  I thought it looked like animal print when cut this way.

Paper:  PTI card, Neenah and scraps
Ink:  MFT, HA and Versafine
Stamps:  SSS, PTI and HA
Dies:  SSS
Other:  Copic markers and Glossy Accents

SSS Challenges

I have two cards today for two SSS challenges.  The Wednesday Challenge and the SSS Flickr Challenge #50.  Both challenges are "Anything Goes."  Such a good challenge to use some of my stamps that have never been inked before.  I am definitely channeling Laura Bassen. Hey I need to practice my ink blending and who better to case for that technique!

Paper:  PTI card, Bazzill and Neenah
Ink:  Versafine, Versamark and Mama Elephant
Stamps:  SSS
Dies:  SSS
Other:  White embossing powder and YNS Gumdrops

Mastering Drips and Splatters

Needless to say, I am not going to finish all the Stamp-a-Faire challenges on time.  I tend to work slowly and probably give my designs way too much thought.  This challenge, Drips and Splatters, presented by Lizzy Jones was so much FUN!  I experimented with different colors and paints and finally settled on this one for my card.

I like the happy colors, and I discovered a great idea once I inlaid the word "hello."

How FUN is this!  Just think of the embellishments you could create!

Paper:  HA card and PTI
Dies:  PTI
Other:  Gansai Tambi watercolor
