Summer Card Camp - Day 3

Hello!

I'm here with my card for Day 3 of Summer Card Camp 2. I decided that I'd skip Day 2 and go back if I can find the time sometime this week-end. ;-)  This way, I can pretend I'm up-to-date with my homework. I think I need to take holidays from work so that I can keep up with class, LOL!

My card today takes inspiration from Kelly Purkey's lesson in masked background stamping. I created a mask to make the banner. My mask was made of washi tape, and very pretty all by itself. I should have taken a photo to show you. Again, like yesterday, using this week's colours, I created an ultra-bright card. I changed a couple of the colours, and my card looks NEON. Woah! I only used four colours, but I didn't clean my stamp so much between stamping, and so created a few extra colours along the way. My die-cut "teacher" is two white layers with the blue layer on top. I glued the layers together using a Stampin' Up! 2-way glue pen. I took Laura's advice in her video that the Tombow Mono-Multi may get a bit messy with fine die-cuts.
I used PTI Wonderful Words: Teacher stamps and die. Ink colours are PTI Hibiscus Burst, SU! Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe, and Memento Tuxedo Black. Card is PTI Basic White and Hawaiian Shores.

Thanks for dropping by to visit. I'm really looking forward to taking a browse through the student galleries over the next few weeks, I'll get down to that over the week-end. :-)
