Keeping it simple
I wanted to enter two challenges with this card but i just couldn't find a vibe. Im struggling a little bit with guilt of owning so many ink pads and stamps and not using them so i went back to basics.. No colouring (well the vellum was pink and i coloured it!! does that count.)
I love the Kaszazz swirl and lets face it, it can be used on anything to give it a bit of jazz... this card however is just not jazzy! I wasn't goign to post a photo but i just sat down in the craft room and looked at it and thought you know its not that bad, someone will appreciate it. A teacher may end up with it (sorry teachers of the world)
The two challenges I participated in for this card were ABC Christmas Challenges which is A is for Angels (ie. Angel wings.. I have fairies... but no angels so the wings are it!)
and Friday Sketchers. I quite liked the sketch this week, and had these fabulous ideas of doing a "lead light' effect on the bottom windows, i did try it but really didnt like the outcome. I will be trying this sketch again in the future though.
Lesson's learnt from this card.... sometimes ideas do not come to light!
Also, its driving me nuts. I am looking for a tutorial for using nestabilities with cuttlebug embossing folders, so the nest makes a frame in the card front with the embossing of the cuttlebug folder behind it. I have looked all day for the tutorial which i knwo exists and I cant find it. If anyone wants to send me a link for it... it may put me about of my misery.
Im officially banned from card making until i clean up my sewing/craft room AGAIN!!!
