Thank you for visiting my little ol’ blog & leaving your comments. I like getting positive comments/criticism regarding my cards –and any advice is nice too! It means a lot that you lovely people go out of your way to visit my blog J There are so many lovely/favourite blogs to visit & just not enough time too to get round to them all…but it’s not for the want of trying…
On to my little project here… I think we all do those little projects that just dow’t quite go to plan, don’t we? We’ll here’s one of mine which I've made today! I’m showcasing it because it’s good to see where we go wrong so we can make changes for the next time…
This is the first attempt at a box easel card. I watched a tutorial on youtube on how to make one. And was quite pleased with the 'mechanics' of how it turned out & I was pleased with my stamping & colouring etc but then, I had
to fiddle around with the top part - thinking it looked to bare with just the main topper on it. I will so never learn lol I cut some corners out and added two little anchors - made by stamping onto shrink plastic - and then my heat gun died on me ;( and then I distressed and became Distressed myself - It looks like a bodge-job around the edges!Note to myself* practice blending more! So, anyway - I lived - & I learnt today lol So on the whole, I'm pleased with the actual box easel card and the main image stamping etc so I can live with that!!
