I've read on a lot of your blogs how you start out making a card, with a pretty clear picture in your head of what it is going to look like, and the result is anything but!! This happens to me A LOT! For my card today, I didn't actually have so much an idea - it was actually a challenge sketch that was swimming around in my head. Naturally, the end result should at least have some, even minor, resemblance to the sketch...right?! NOPE! I tried so hard to make this particular sketch work - "try this, try that, maybe this image, maybe that one?" Nope, nope and nope! "Ohhhh..., but maybe this would look okay with this, and ohhhh, maybe that could go there"...and so it began. By the time I was done, I had veered WAY off course, and the card looked NOTHING like the sketch! And a wedding card - yeah, there was NO intention to make one of those when I first started either!
Here's how it all turned out:
I ended up trying out my Rock Candy glitter (another free gift from Ellen Hutson in my Black Friday order!) and sprinkled it on a diagonal pattern I created with my double sided tape. I was really impressed with the glitter - it stuck to where it was supposed to, and it didn't end up everywhere it wasn't (you know, like in my hair, in my shoes, in the carpet...you get the idea!). I kept adding more and more of the WPlus9 flowers until I was happy with the cluster, then used my new 'forever and always' dies from PS. I added the congrats sentiment (Mama Elephant) at the bottom to ground the scene.
For a chuckle, here's a peek at the Unscripted Sketch that it was "supposed" to look like! (see what I mean?!! not.even.close!!!) I'm still going to take another shot at it though and hopefully I will be able to come up with something a little closer next time around!!!
That's all for me today!!
Thanks for the visit :)
