THE CHALLENGE SPARK! WEEK TWO!
Sometimes a person needs a challenge to spark that fun spontaneous creativity. And boy, this one was a real challenge. It maybe didn't help that this week was crazy busy. And I say that like as if other weeks aren't. Smile. (You can read about week one here & how this all started.) So here we go with week two...
Grace from Create It Because You Can chose this week's challenge to use the emboss resist technique & then she added a vintage twist to it all. Gulp. I can do emboss resist, but vintage?! You can check out card for the Challenge Spark here.
To me, vintage is collage. Plus pastel pretty colors like coral, mint & aqua with some sand & kraft. I wanted to use my new stamp set: Butterfly Basics. I think it does a dandy job of collage.
That key. Isn't it just lovely? I purchased this beauty from trusty ol' Walmart! Otherwise I stayed true to Stampin' Up! supplies.
But you know, as much as I like collage & vintage, I have a difficult time putting it together in a way that I am happy with. Perfectionist maybe. I don't know, but it stressed me out. So next week, to give myself a break I choose negative space. I'm thinking bold, clean & graphic for myself. Whew, that will be better.
Now I better go clean my inky fingers,
