Thank You Very Much

Monday, July 10, 2017

Well, hello there.  I took a little impromptu crafting break last week but I'm back!  I've been a busy little kid around the house re-arranging furniture, having a bit of a clear-out, and assembling a whole lot of IKEA stuff.  But I was missing my craft room so I ventured in there Sunday night to dust off the cobwebs.

And what cobwebs there were!  I had intended to play along with the tall and skinny sketch at Sunday Stamps but after spending quite some time getting that flower stamped just right I realized that, other than the tall and skinny part, the layout of my card looked nothing like their sketch.  I also was playing along with LeAnne's monochromatic colors at The Paper Players.  I was all set to stamp some leaves (in green of course) when I realized that there's no green in that color challenge!  I didn't like the idea of my flower floating all by itself in all that white space and I was too tired to add more flowers because that would involve a lot of masking so I stamped a couple of outline leaves in Rich Razzleberry.  Ugh!  The flower is gorgeous (gotta love the Altnew magic of layered images) but the rest I am not happy with.

Tomorrow is another day and I'm sure that my mojo is out there lurking just waiting for a spark to ignite it.  I'll be back at it again soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

It may not have matched the sketch - but it is a lovely layout of its own. And such a stunning layered flower.

Well, I think your card is gorgeous! I am so psyched to see what everyone is doing with my colors! This is just beautiful! You've layered those images perfectly and the Rich Razzleberry leaves are perfect....artistic license!!! Thanks for rocking my colors this week!

Oh, I think your mojo is back in full strength! That simple layout really makes the gorgeous layered flower pop off the card. And...who says leaves HAVE to be green? Thanks for sharing over at The Paper Players Challenge this week! ~ Annie

Beautiful Jen! I have that Altenew Peony. It's gorgeous and I know how difficult it can be to get it lined up just right. Great job with these opulent colours. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.
