I'm sharing my final two cards for last week's My Favorite Things Camp Create. Both feature fun backgrounds that are a bit out of the norm for me.
To go with my leafy panel, I stamped and colored the set's giraffe image. This time, I did watercolor the images using my Clean Color markers. I carefully cut around the image, then added foam tape to the back. I adhered a strip of green cardstock, punched along the top with a grass border punch and wrapped with some brown ribbon, near the bottom of the stamped panel. The green piece actually covers where my stamping wasn't really good--love when I can salvage something with a mistake on it! I added the giraffe on top, then stamped the set's thank you sentiment next to the image. The finished panel was adhered to a green card base.

My second card features a background created with a stencil and masking. I created my own stencil from some scrap cardstock and a chevron die plate. After securing it in place with a bit of removable tape, I inked it using a trio of distress inks. The inked panel was trimmed and layered on to an aqua mat, then adhered to a green card base on an angle.
I added a shiny silver pierced circle die cut to the panel and topped it with a pair of die cut feathers and a twine-tied button. The "you tickle my fancy" sentiment from the Right on Target set was stamped on a narrow fishtail flag strip, then adhered to the panel so it extended out from beneath the feather pair. A pair of aqua sequins were arranged around the feathers to add a final sparkly touch to the design.
