Camp Create cards

Apologies, long post ahead ... !
Yipppeeeeee, a whole week off work for me, looks like the weather might be looking up too :)
I had a nice crafty evening in the kitchen, just me and the Olympics (which I'm loving!), so I thought I'd get caught up with the MFT Camp Create sessions.  It was one of my New Year's Resolutions to be more adventurous and try new techniques, so these are great for me!

Card 1 is for Divine Dry Embossing.  I've used this sweet little snowman from Eat Cake Graphics:
1193-J Snowman (assembled)

I've coloured him with watercolour pencils, and added Spectrum Noir sparkle and clear gloss to his hat band and scarf.
For my BG, I used an MFT embroidery stitched rectangle to cut out a template, chalked with blue and green, and then embossed the same die.  I don't know if it shows up in my pic but I slightly missed my edge for the embossing, but I like how it turns out anyway.  I also added some
sparkle and clear gloss to my snowflakes.

Card 2 was for the Camp Create bonfire challenge - single layer savvy
I followed Stephanie's fab card layout and copied her dotty ground idea.  
My farmyard critters are from MFT - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the haystack and to the horse's mane and tail, clear gloss added to the cow horns and their hooves.  Little star sequins from Taylored Expressions.

And finally, card 3 is another new technique to me - stunning shadow stamping.
I found an old mostly dried up white ink pad at the back of the cupboard, so used it with my one and only coloured ink pad - Memento Rose Bud.  The pink base is a much nicer shade than it looks here, but I can never get it to photograph right!  My flowers and sentiment are both from Simon Says Stamp (I think).  Bling from Taylored Expressions again.

So that's me with my 6 camp badges for the week!  I'm so pleased I managed to play along as there were a few of the sessions I thought "I'll never be able to make that!" :)
