I saw a new challenge (new to me, that is) listed on a friend's blog and decided to give it a try. This is for the For Fun Challenge. Their challenge this week is a fold challenge and you're supposed to use one other fold besides the regular fold of the card. fold, fold, fold getting a little redundant here.
This was an exercise in frustration and improvisation (as most of my cards are.) No twine, not enough Copics to color with, this thingamagig is too big, this one is too small, blah, blah, blah. I wonder if I had all the scrapbook/crafting tools I wanted & needed would I be satisfied then? It would make things a whole lot easier and go a lot smoother, THAT'S for sure!
I normally try to keep my cards as flat as I can because the vast majority of them go to OWH and I want them to be as easy to pack and to mail as possible. This one is a little too lumpy & bumpy so I've got to go try to buy something (like maybe a heavy weight cotton twine) that I can replace my lasso rope. I've got to replace it instead of just leaving it off, which I think I would prefer, because of the glue residue.
I've come to realize that I always see things I would'uv, should'uv, could'uv done differently AFTER I post pictures of my cards. Maybe I should always post a preview picture, find out what is wrong or missing & then go back and rework the card, retake the picture and then post it. I usually end up redoing alot of my cards anyways, but I never post the revisions. I guess I figure seeing it once is enough for everyone. The more I look at it, this one will definitely get a little redo, but that will have to come tomorrow......
