A couple of weeks ago I was challenged by a few of my Dt mates at OCC to make a clean and simple card, and anyone who knows me will appreciate my trepidation at such a Challenge.
I initially ignored the suggestion, hoping it would disappear; as things so often do in blogland... but I was not going to be so fortuitous.
The culprits I will name, as they so deserve to be named: Marcy Kaminski -En Papillote Arts and Anne-Marie Hile- Stampin' Anne.
I spent all day Saturday at Stamp Group working on these cards, and the group that were putting up with me on that day should receive a medal; a Gold one!
If it was not for their support and encouragement I would not have persevered.
Anyway enough of my lamentations, I will show you my first card and then over the next few days, I may show you the rest; yes I did make more than one!
The embossed flower is Stamping up and the trellis border is memory box(thanks Dawn).
The ink is squeezed lemonade distress inks, which always looks puce Green when photographed!
I have a teeny bit of negative space.
This is a close-up, you may pick up the three little pearls. I initially had a ribbon attached but that came off, I think it was pulled apart a few times and looked at a thousand!
I am not going to pass comment on the card as I usually do, I will leave that to you. I will relay my thoughts at the end of the week.
If I can use an analogy to explain my lack of creativity these past few weeks it is like our weather; 'a huge low sitting over the country and it is very slow moving!'
I am hoping this change of genre is going to allow the clouds to disperse an let the sun shine in... Yeah.
With that hope I will send a smile, as always, and wish you a good week.Sue:)
