The latest Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers was intriguing, and I was a bit stumped on how I would tackle it. I took a peek at the gallery for a bit of extra inspiration, and while the creations were lovely I just wasn’t getting the right idea for what I was going to do. So lets start with the inspiration picture.
Great idea for a party decoration, but I needed and idea to create a card. After thinking about it for a couple of days I finally got my idea! In fact, it was an old idea of mine, revamped for the challenge.
So my idea was simple enough to execute, but I managed to goof up image after image to finally get it right. For these two cards I have about eight images trashed. An ink smudge here, a crooked stamp there. Blah!
So after a couple more days I finally have my pretty unspoilt images, but by now I’ve run out of creative inspiration to mount them onto a card! So another couple of days pass before I think up of doodling simple colourful lines around the main panel. Even that came dangerously close to going haywire too. LOL. I’m not convinced I’ve done the right thing either, but it is what it is for today, and I’ll be happy with that.
So there you have it…..a whole week to make two cards, LOL. I’m kinda over it, but my daughter came by today and she loved them as soon as she saw them. All is not lost. And would you believe, since I finished that card this morning I have made 12 other cards. Ahh…. the highs and lows of card making.
