Naomi & I had a bit of a play day the other day with our Decorative Masks, Grateful Bunch Bundle as well as the Botanical Blooms Bundle both from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.
For some reason my card wasn’t coming together the way I hoped. I was also intent on using So Saffron on my card – didn’t realise it until such time as Naomi mentioned it – but I was not about to give in until I saw her gorgeous card.
I just felt mine wasn’t going anywhere – colours were wrong, stencilling was wrong & my mind had wondered…… so to the one side it went.
Not letting it get the better of me, I picked it up again the next day & played around. I ended up not only using So Saffron (which I wanted) but I changed out the main flower to Blushing Bride (still not happy) & then sponged it with Melon Mambo Ink. I had put everything away by this stage & didn’t want to cut another flower. My desk was covered in them!
After changing my flower, I then decided that I was going to change my stencilling & go another way. So I flipped the card over, grabbed a mask – circle in this instance – laid my Decorative Mask over the top & sponged in Soft Sky. Hooray, at long last it was coming together!!!!
Not taking any notice on the Wink of Colour Pen, I’ve used Gold instead of the Clear but am loving the final result. I hope you do too!
