The color challenge this week was to use Whisper White, Soft Sky & Basic Gray, I LOVE this combination! When I saw the colors, I immediately knew I wanted to use my 'Seaside' stamp set. I also knew that I wanted to use Shimmery White CS with the Giant Sea shell instead of Whisper white, just because I wanted that shimmery look.
Do you ever get to a point while making a card, where everything is going great than you think, hmmmm, maybe I will add this or maybe I should add that. Well that's what happened with this card today! Everything was going great when all of a sudden I decided to add some piercing around the edge of the Shimmery white. Now, normally I like the pierced look on my cards, NOT a good idea on this card, I hated the way it looked! So I tried to crop the edges off because I liked the way I had watercolored the shell and didn't want to re-do it. That wasn't a good idea either! I'm thinking to myself, this card is taking longer than it should have! OK now what, well, I decided to re-stamp and re-color the shell, only to have the black ink bleed while I was watercoloring. For PETE's SAKE, I'm trying to get this card done and take a picture while I have good light and before I need to get out the door with my son for his Lacrosse game!!! Why is it not cooperating with me?????? Hey, I think I will cut out the first shell and slap over the top of the bleeding shell, ooooooohhh, I like it! Take the picture and out the door I go! WHEW!
I hope tomorrow's card goes much better than today's! Thank's for stopping by!
