The Blessed Family
Hi crafty friends, I have a card for you that I really, really struggled with and I'm not happy with it at all, but what is done is done. First off you know that I am trying to learn how to color with my Spectrum Noir markers. Yea, the key work is trying!! This is going to take a while to teach an old dog a new trick. lol Then instead of cutting my image out with a circle like I wanted to, I cut the entire thing out with the Nestie that wanted as the background like a dummy. Now that I've thought about it I could have still cut it out with a circle Nestie, but who said I could think?! I tried to "fix" it by putting on Antique Line distress ink on the background while in the Nestie and should have stopped there, but then decided to put some Iced Spruce too, but that didn't go so well for me either. Sigh So now I'm not happy with the coloring, sponging, or the way I have cut it out. Next I searched every piece of paper I own for the "right" paper to go with this image. Now let me tell you I don't have a ton of paper but have my fair share of stacks and lose paper. Not finding any Christmas (I don't have much Christmas paper) paper that looked good with the image I finally settled on what is on my card. I love the paper and it went the best with the image. Not exactly what I call Christmas, but....it the only thing I liked. So I guess I will let you see my pitiful card now and of course it has been very cloudy and overcast here for two days and Sandy is come to boot, so my pics aren't even very good. lol My card certainly leaves a LOT to be desired. Anyway I am entering it in "Rudolph Day" over at Stamping for Pleasure. Why you might ask after looking at it? Just for the heck of it and as my teen tell me, because I can. lol
