CTMH With Love


I really like this past weeks colour challenge and sketch challenge. So, I thought I would combine them. I took so many pictures of this card and could not get a decent one. The iridescent ice looks mushed instead of sparkly. I've never really stamped these type of images before and I know why.. I'm not good at it. It's different though. I'm tired of my same ol' same ol'.
Recipe:
CTMH With Love stamp set that I got for my Bday from my so generous rockin friend Mel and S.U. Stitched BG. Sky, River rock and Vanilla paper. Sky, River and White craft inks. Blender pen to colour the sky onto the stamp. Why the hell SU didn't make the incolours matching markers is beyond me. I'm hoping they made matching markers for this next set of incolours. I've got the CTMH markers that match coming. SU is losing out on sales. Ok, done my little rant. Iridescent ice on the little sky flowers, ribbon, small corner punch for scallops and used a cuttlebug folder (forget the name) with white chalk rubbed across it. I had high hopes for this card, but it just didn't come together as imagined. Next time as I always say to myself!
It's cold and rainy here today, so instead of cleaning...I'm off to attempt another card. Now, just to keep the girls entertained.
I hope you are out somewhere enjoying a hot day!

This is stunning! I love the softness and I can totally imagine the glitteriness. (Pic looks great to me, but it's evil how things always look way better in person!) You ROCK and are way too hard on yourself, but I know how that is. OXOXOXXOXOOXXOXO smoocheroooooos OXOXXOXOOXO mdgkpa
