Julee's sketch has a twist - you have to incorporate something from your scrap pile, like images that almost made it onto a card but for some reason were put aside. This first card is one i whipped up yesterday. The main stamped image was an "almost" and the faux ribbon was a scrap. i didn't like this one enough to enter it into the Mojo Monday contest, so today i tried again.
Ingredients: CS - stash; stamps - Papertrey, Inkadinkado, Art Warehouse; ink - Colorbox Fluid Chalk, Versamagic, Ranger Archival; PP- Rob and Bob; brad - MM; stickles; pop-dots.
The following two cards also include some "almosts" - i stamped, chalked and inked both suns a few months ago, and the brown CS on the first one was something i bleach-stamped just the other day. My problem is this - i can't decide which of these two i like best and want to enter. Advice? Do you like...
...or CARD #2?
...Or, maybe you like the first one that i decided against! Either way, i'd love to hear some feedback.
Ingredients for both cards: CS- stash and scraps; stamps - sun - unknown, sentiments by Inkadinkado, label frame from SU's Noteworthy set; ink - Palette Hybrid, Tim Holtz Distress Ink; chalk; PP - My Mind's Eye and unknown scraps; ribbon - stash; brads - MM; pop-dots.
Thanks, and have a great day!
ETA: Thanks for the comments, ladies! In response to your questions and observations, Dana:
The faux ribbon on the flower card was made using a ribbon stamp from Art Warehouse's Ribbons and Lace set. i stamped it with chalk ink, wrapped a piece around and then wrangled with another piece until it was "tied" like ribbon. i also agree that sun card #1 could use some ribbon peeking through, and i wish now i had matted it on brown. Here's the problem - i adhered these two so well that yesterday i tried to switch the sentiments and they wouldn't budge (pop-dots)! i also used both snail adhesive and Tombow Mono-Multi because i didn't want these coming apart. Well, now i can't get them apart! Hehe... i thought about making a new card using the things i like best in both of these, but then i wouldn't be using my "almosts"... i think i almost confused myself with this post!
