Do you ever get one of those sessions when it doesn't matter what you do it just isn't right? That was my day today. I am sure beginners would have stamped better than I did today.
With this card I had an idea to use the flower image as you see it then just the flower head a little further along. The full image on the first attempt smudged, second attempt stamped well - but not the partial image. I hadn't placed it properly & got a smudgy part of the image that I did not want. So, start again. At last something I was happy with so moved to the colouring. That went well. I trimmed the card then coloured the edges with one of the Promarker pens. Finally added the ribbon with a little faux bow & layered it all onto a card.
On this card I used the floral corner that I used the other day, this time stamping direct on the card. Fortunately that part went well. But I didn't like my colouring so decided to stamp the flowers again colour them cut them out & place over the main image. Didn't like that either after I had cut them out. So back to the drawing - or stamping - board & stamp a new image, this time stamping went well as did colouring. But this strange stamping session wasn't over yet. I stamped the greeting in Versamark - not very well - so some of it didn't come out. No point embossing it. I am afraid this one is a cover up job - I allowed the versamark ink to dry then cover it with the flower, stamped & embossed the image, cut it out, & glued it to the flower.
Both designs eventually clean & simple. Both purple which I think echoed my mood. Why is it that purple is a difficult colour to photograph - it is never true to the colour.
Thank you for popping in - why not come back tomorrow & see if I have a better day.
