I am posting several days of cards. I posted each on Split Coast and to the class from there. They were many new concepts for me and enjoyable to create.
The fishy one is Day 1. I had trouble making an initial like Kristina Werner showed in the video, so I finally went with a circle. I used a few Gina K Design ink colors and ink blended. Then when the ink was dry, I added fish from The Stamps of Life Under the Sea set. The word birthday and the Wishes die came from the Elegant Asters Card Kit from Gina K Designs.
This was Day 2, Make you own Stripes. I followed fell Buddy, Judy’s advice, in making sure to cover each inked stripe before moving on to the next one. I used a combination of painter’s tape and very low tack, purple tape. I managed to leave a few white stripes I liked it, so I made a few more white by not butting my tape exactly next to the one inked. The stamps are from Maymay Made It, called New Creation and Positive Vibes. I did add a few stripes of glitter pen. I enjoyed this once I began creating it .
This is for Day 5, Stencil Shading. The idea is to give a vintage look to your stenciling. This is a new concept for me, but was quite easy once I began. I used Memento inks and a Hero Arts ink pad, along with my blender brushes. The instructor began with Warm Glow ink by GKD, but I do not own that ink so I used Desert Sand as that is my lightest brown ink. Then I added the pink from Hero Arts and the green from Memento. I used the sentiment from Wreath of Wishes, thinking this will be a good anniversary or wedding card.

They’re all beautiful. Your stripes are wonderful – glad you could learn from my disaster.
I took your advice. I did struggle with the tape and used a lot. Thanks!
These are all wonderful but my personal favourite is the fishes one. You did a great job on all of them and your stripes are lovely.
You are really keep up with camp this go around. Your decision to leave some white on your stripes was spot on, to use an British term .
I am trying. I have day 3 sitting here to post to this blog, then there is day 4 to create. Today is day 6 and I am busy part of the day, so I shall see how much time and energy I have. I am learning new things and that is good. Thanks!
Lisa, these are really awesome cards and designs. The stripes and those fishes as well as the soft stenciling are really gorgeous. Have fun at camp.
These are awesome Lisa. I love them all
Love your fish scene you created using the reverse masking technique from day 1; the blue and green sponging looks great with the black stamped fish and greeting. Great job on your masked stripes, and the stamps you chose to go with them look amazing. And your vintage stenciling – perfect! Well done.
Thanks! It was a lot of cards finished that took a few days to create. They were fun.
Lisa, each of these is lovely. I really like the stripes with the flowers on top.
