Today’s card was put together with scraps (the background, at least) and though I don’t mind how it turned out, I’m not crazy about this one, but thought I’d add it to the blog anyway. For good or bad. We all have our ‘off’ days, today was mine. :\
I like the colours – I mean, who doesn’t like Blackberry Bliss??? And the Hello Honey just adds a spark of WOW against the richness of the deep purple, but – hmmm…
Once I’d adhered the strips, I realised they needed more definition, and I should have daubed the edges of each piece before I stuck it down. Maybe….
I will admit to not being a fan of polymer stamps – whether they are Stampin’ Up! as these ones are, or of any type of polymer stamp. I don’t know if it’s just me being kack-handed with them, or if they act this way with everyone, but I find they hold too much ink, and then have a tendency to ‘bleed’ or ‘smear’ no matter how careful I am.
I do love the framelits that come with this set!!! That I will say. It’s just a shame the small Blackberry Bliss flower in the center here, doesn’t have it’s own framelit. :o\ I’m not the best at fussy-cutting. LOL
If you have any suggestions for this card, I’d love to hear them!
