Oh I had grand plans for Wednesday. It was too rainy to walk, so I planned pretty much the full day at home with nothing to do but make cards. (well, there's always other stuff to do, but you know what I mean!)
I started with Muse 151, where Michele has given us a pretty card and a fun song-based challenge:
I focused on Michele's colours and chose a Bowie song*. I pulled out one of my all-time favourite stamps (Both End Blossoms by Stampin' Up) and got started.
I wanted to participate in #thedailymarker30daychallenge as well so I decided to try the negative space colouring technique that Jennifer McGuire showed us the other day. (She always makes it look sooooo easy, doesn't she? lol!)
I had trouble stamping, then embossing, then masking, then sponging (repeat, repeat, repeat). I ended up with this:
In the end, I managed to salvage one, cut it into a strip using one edge of a pierced rectangle die on each side of my panel.
I finished it off with a Concord & 9th sentiment. And then had trouble folding the card without cracking it, and photographing it.
*The Bowie song is "Oh You Pretty Things". Interestingly, he wrote another one more recently called "The Pretty Things are Going to Hell". Maybe that one was more appropriate for this poor little card! lol!
