I thought I'd share something a bit different today, an Easter card I made for the recent German shows (there was a set of mix and match greetings stamps). Done on Centura Pearl card with gold embossing and a beautiful red bow this could have been a really classy, elegant card................
but I decided to go BRIGHT.
I cut the egg on my Cameo (from a Jennifer Wambach design from the Silhouette Store) and started to decorate it with the Clarity Berry Corner stamp. I have the set of Memento Dew Drop ink pads so I had a good selection of colours to play with. It was all going well until I picked up the wrong green three stamps from the end on the first attempt. I may have said a few very bad words at this point!
I then decided I wasn't happy with the design so I started again on a slightly different version.
This happened a couple of times before I was happy with it. As you can see I wasted quite a bit of card on this "simple" project. I was convinced it was a good idea though, so I persevered and eventually ended up with something I was pleased with.
I stamped the greeting inside but it looked a bit too plain, even for me. I went rummaging through my ribbon box and found a small piece of bright green ribbon. It was just what it needed to finish it off.
I just have finishing touches and photographs to take today, then next weekend's UK samples will be ready to post tomorrow. I went into my craft room this morning, it looks like a disaster area! I thought you might like to see what sort of mess a "Lynne at Work" makes. It's only fair as I have photos of my pristine room at the top of the page. :-)
The dining table is also covered in ProMarkers where I've brought bits downstairs to work on. I think I'm going to be very busy cleaning and tidying on Wednesday!!!! Will post again when I've tidied up, just to show I'm not a total slob. Although it will soon be back in this state when the next box of stamps arrive. Keeping my craft room nice a tidy is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge! :-)
