Todays offering is a collection of what I would class as my mistakes just to show we all make them. I wan´t going to post these cards but I thought what the hell we all make mistakes.
The first offering is not my usual style at all, it feels a little old fashioned to me however as Mrs Duck said on her post, which can be found here, "Some folks almost seem embarrassed by using these sort of bits and bobs to make cards but I think they are lovely still, even though I have got a bit more advanced now.I guess what I'm trying to say is, a lovely card is a lovely card, whether its taken you 10 minutes or 10 hours and whether you have used equipment costing £1 or £100. As long as we all find a bit of joy in what we do, its all good. I wanted to post this to show that we can all have great ideas that just don't translate or that just because a card doesn't look modern or right now, it can still be a nice card. The ideas started by me cutting a Marianne rose die with red felt. I liked the way they looked and felt that a simple card would show them off. I embossed a piece of Core'dinations with a floral folder and sanded it adding the roses on a tag with a felt heart. To me this is a little old fashioned however not everyone is 'into' the same styles.
To my mind I haven't made the best of this one .
Next is this offering in blue and purple, this shows, to me at least, that even with the latest dies and styles we can still make ugly cards!!!!
To my eye this has been too heavily worked, I really should remember that less is more! I used too many die cuts and stamps and really there is enough stuff here for 2 or more cards!
I hope, perhaps, todays post it might make all of us feel better about the ones that don't work!!! Something new tomorrow, thanks for the messages and suggestions am over the worst now and just need to start eating again, might make a cake,
