Summer Card Camp 2 Days 1 and 2

I made these two cards tonight using the color scheme and card sketches for week 1 of the Summer Card camp.  I like the sketches a lot this week, but the color scheme is not my comfort zone.  But I guess that is the point of the class--to stretch us out of our comfort zone.  I used SU! Colors of Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Melon Mambo with black as my neutral.

I tried one of the techniques highlighted on day one by embossing a vellum overlay.  I put my own spin on the striped panel from the sketch by using my Watercolor Wonder background stamps to make stripes. All stamps are PTI.

I am looking forward to each day of this card class.  I really need something to get me back into stamping as I have pretty much done nothing all summer.  I could use a little creative me time.

Love your take on the sketches this week. The balloons look awesome on the 1st card and love the sentiments on the second card. Great job.
