This is a card that I would say took a
quite a bit of practice to make. I wanted to try the
Splitcoast Stampers Technique Lovers Challenge
It looked like an easy one to do. And the
results in the TLC399 gallery were amazing and
artistic. But I have to say this was one of the
hardest challenges for me.This photo below
shows the 17 failed tries. I had almost given up
and thought, well, this technique isn't for me,
when my friend Pam encouraged me to give it
This is the result of my 18th try. What I did
differently was I added raffia to cover up the rough
edge on top, and I also just relaxed and said,
It is ok if it isn't perfect, just do it.
Then when I was done, I looked at it, and
realized that I really liked it. It helped
that I used the new cracked background stamp
from MFP. It is going to be released next week.
It is called CRACKED HELLO.
Have you ever just seen a stamp and know
right away that it is going to be one of your favorites?
Well that is what has happened with this set.
I looked at the butterfly and thought... yea another butterfly,
not like I don't have a million of those already. But, I
am really loving this one. It is really easy to color and make
it look like a real one.
The card below used the same set and I did crayon resist for the
I am thankful for encouraging friends who don't let me give up!!!!
