Stamp TV Wings & Things Challenge
Stamp TV’s Free for all Friday Challenge is “Things With Wings”. Here’s the card that I came up with after many, and I mean, many attempts.
Do you ever have one of those days when nothing you do seems right to you? Well that’s the story behind the making of this card. Have you ever crafted in anger? That’s the emotional state I was in when making this card. I must’ve stamped that darn bird about five times, at least. I just could not get the look right. I tried coloring with copics, it looked horrible. I tried stamping it in different types of patterns, and they all looked terrible to me. And when I finally had a completed card I realized the sentiment was crooked! Aaaargh! I tore it up and started again.
Typically, I step away from my craft desk when I’m feeling this way. But this time I was stubborn. I was not going to let this bird beat me. Just typing that makes me realize just how ridiculous I was being. When I finally finished this version, I proceeded to take photos. That became another frustration. I just could not get a shot that I liked and then when I tried using my iphoto software to fix it up, I still couldn’t get it right. So please excuse the look of these photos, particularly the pink tint in the background. Believe it or not I was shooting with a white background. Enough griping. Onto the details of the card.
I’m still making my way through my Floral Ultimate Pack papers which is what I used for the bird and the teeny tiny leaves. I used the Falling for You stamps from Gina K. Designs. I love the sweet sentiment “tweet thing”, that goes so well with this image. That little bird is totally a “tweet thing.”
What have been some of your frustrating crafting moments?
