Hehe. I just crack myself up. Not really. So, I don't like this card AT ALL l but I have been
struggling to find my stamping mojo today and I needed to post SOMETHING! I just can't seem to come up with anything that I really love! I am not giving up though. I will keep at it though...BECAUSE...my new stamps came!!!! :D I was jumping for joy when I checked the mail! People probably thought I was a lunatic. I kind of am. I just don't want them to know that! Hehe. So anyway, I got some new MFT stamps and some new Riley stamps from Hanna stamps! You will be seeing lots of creations with them shortly! :D I was about to go into a stamping depression until I checked the mail! Now I am ready to go!
Well, I suppose I should give you the deets of this card.
Besides the fact that I don't like it, I decided I wanted to try my hand at the paper tole technique. If you aren't familiar with the technique, it's where you layer an image to give it a 3-D effect. Here is a picture of what the image looks like from the side. Now obviously, if I were to go back and redo th
is card I would not color the hippo such a bright color, especially pink. I don't know what in the world I was thinking!!!! I was just trying to challenge myself to use some colors that have hardly been touched and it was harder than I thought! I would also add something else to the background if I could. It's a l
ittle plain. At least I think it is. It's just too busy in the middle and too plain on the outside. Do you agree?
I guess that's all I have.
I used MJ's lunchtime sketch challenge for this card so I will definitely be doing it again. I have to submit a desce
nt card...right? Ok, that's all for now. I promise I will be back with a much more lovely card!
*I will not be responsible for any eye doctor bills that result from looking at this card too long.
**I am also sorry for the lameness of this post. I don't know what's wrong with me today!
