Camp Create 2017

I've been on a bit of a creative vacation, but I'm back! I came across MFT's Camp Create 2017 and it was just what I needed to kick start that mojo!

I inked the cow print background with a Clear Scraps stencil. I used MFT's The Whole Herd for the stamped cow and sentiment. 

Next up was creative masking. I used the trough from The Whole Herd and the flowers from Blissful Blooms to mask a flower container for my card. 

For my last card, I created a inlaid background using a Crafters Companion background die and used a Out On a Limb Pure Innocence stamp.
