Ok, this is the hardest sketch for me so far… BAR NONE. Is it because it’s ssoooooooooooooooo hard to put little squares on a card? Hardly. It’s hard because I’m a twit who thinks it makes SOOOOOOOOOOOO much sense to come up with an idea and get donkey-headed about making it happen. This is attempt five. It’s twin is not as clear that it is a butterfly as this one is… if you can call this clear.
Ok, so see what I mean? Little simple basic cardifiedness. HA. I was so determined to cut a stamped image in quarters and assemble them like that.
Attempt 1- I cut scalloped squares out and then mini squares to go on top. Too small for the card. Scrap bin.
Attempt 2- I stamped an image, cut out, made frames, didn’t fit on the card.
Attempt 3- I took the above images and tried to put them on another card that is 5×7 rather than a typical A2 card. HA.
Attempt 4- I colored a happy birthday stamp… THREE TIMES (because the second one had an ink smudge that I missed at first) and then realized IT would also be too big.
Attempt 5- I gave up, stamped something simple, and decided to settle. Oh, and the colors? Well see the background of that paper? It’s mostly creamy yellow. Not grayed periwinkle. Weird.
Ink- SU Misty Mauve or something like that. SU Always Artichoke
Paper- SU Blue to be You and Designer paper from Basic Grey (Both out of print I think)
Accessories- Not on your life
Tools- One very worn out paper trimmer
Best part of it??? It’s DONE!
