Ok, post 2 today because I really don't feel like watching the Super Bowl... make sure to scroll down for my other post!
Haha, I think I had a rough time with Compose a Card with Becky. Becky, you place a lot of restrictions on a girl! First off, we had colors to go with, secondly we had to follow a cutting list. If this isn't all enough there's scoring and flowers involved! Talk about challenges!
And depending on how you squint, this is the same layout as this week's CPS sketch as well. :)
So I figured I'd try out Becky's challenge once and see what I felt (after all, she did sing to me so I feel like I owe it to her to try!). Let me tell ya, this card took me FOREVER to make. I don't know what it was... I like flowers, I like scoring, I like twine, I even like the colors... Maybe its just because it's Becky's challenge. ;-)
Ok, so onwards... I stamped the flowers from Friends til the End in Hibiscus. I own no flower punches -- that needs to be remedied but I tend to prioritize stamps over punches... I decided that I didn't want to score the 5 lines only 1/4 inch away from each other (gasp.... it's not in my nature to follow any challenge to the T - what fun is that?) so I scored them on a diagonal and 1 inch apart. I didn't go all the way... I drew a light line in pencil on the back so I'd stop about 1/3 of the way down.
I found a scrap piece of thin paper that was just barely wider than the ribbon and I felt like that helped to offset the scoring more than just the ribbon. Glued my scrap paper down and spent a little time fiddling with my ribbon.
I stamped just "Friend" originally but then after playing some more decided that I needed just a little more so I very carefully stamped the bottom. I know it doesn't photo well since my light source is coming from the top...
Ok, Becky, bring on the next one! This was fun - I'll have to play again! And knowing me, I won't do such a good job following instructions next time... it's rough following instructions!
