I am taking part in a challenge after so long! Because of the long week end I thought I would give this a go as I really liked the brief.
I told you , there will be a few cards from me...
Believe it or not, but , I was thinking about why we don't have a system in the Die cutting world where we could cut out scalloped shapes since these little scalloped have taken the world of cardmaking and scrapbooking by storm...To buy punches for them, including the plain circle to mat and layer, would cost an arm and a leg, so it was out of the question.I would have had to buy how many punches? 5? 6? and witht the right plain shapes to go with it, another 5? And then, where do I keep all these as I do not have plenty of storage.So I wondered and wondered and even thought I had a brilliant idea as to think why a Die company isnt doing it! Little did I know that there is already a company(spellbinders) doing it and I wasn't the first person to have thought of that 'brilliant' idea! How sad is that? I was so happy to find out about Nestabilities but so disappointed with myself for not finding this out any sooner..(what was I thinking? I would make a fortune by coming up with this idea and giving my port folio to one of the comapanies?).Anyway, what is done is done, I have to make sure, I am the first one to come out with a super idea....I have to tell you this before I move on, when the crop-a-dile came out, I thought, there should be another one which will allows you to punch in the middle of a 12x12 page...and what happens next? I heard cropadile has got a big brother!!!So again, I failed in my attempt of coming up with what I thought was my bril idea!!Anyway.....one day, one day.........
I have promised to show you my latest cards I have made but never found the time to upload.In fact my memory card reader went missing...oh yeah, missing! Can it walk? NO!so how come?Because someone keeps moving my things around....and that someone is ME.I would like to blame it on someone but honesty prevails my conscience and I have to admit, I am the culprit.I had to go get a new one and when the new one turns up, I will go a bit mad but I think I will give it to my sister, or maybe keep it in case the new one goes missing?? Good idea...now lets get started!
I have made this card using a technique on Technique Junkies website. I have used one of the cuttlebug embossing folder and the image is from Crafty Individuals. I have used Dee Grenig Blending box inkpad in shades of blue for the background embossed image. The stamped image has been inked with Distress ink(dark blue) and with a aqua flo brush, I have watered part of the image to give a suble effect. The colourful flowers are prisma pencils and sansodor. Finished off in a Basic Grey embellishemnt and some organza ribbon.
