I was checking the Simply Stampin' blog yesterday morning for the challenge, and was very shocked to be named top 3 for the second week running, so a big thank you to all the ladies, I can't believe it!
Now yesterday I had very good intentions I was going to spend the day at my desk making pretty things, I wanted to start with a combo of the Simply Stampin' challenge which this week is 'Punch it out' and CASE study and then move onto Viva la verve. I started as planned, it took me ages to choose one of Chupa's cards to CASE her work is truly amazing and inspirational, I narrowed it down it three and chose this one
I liked the pops of colour and the white inked sentiment, so I got out my buttons found three bright ones and picked out some matching CS, I got into trouble when I hit the embossed white flourish in the background, firstly I started but trying to cut out a section from an embossing folder, but this look terrible so I decided just to use a die cut shape without embossing it, and ink the edges instead.
I'm really not sure if I like it. I kept looking at it and thinking there's just something missing, don't you think?
Well this was where my creativity left me, I'm hoping that I'll find my mojo today, maybe it's hiding under all that paper on my desk?! If I find it I may give this challenge another go with one of the other beautiful cards on my Chupa short-list.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
