A sketch...

You shouldn't say it is not good. You should say, you do not like it; and then, you know, you're perfectly safe. -James Whistler

I don't know why I am posting this card...I made it for the Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge...I love the way the main image turned out...but I am not happy with the card overall...but I am posting it anyway...maybe as I look at it I can figure out how to fix it??? Maybe it is the Card base color??? Needs more Patterned Paper? Deeper color?? Ditch the gingham?? I don't know...but Something is off!


Supplies:
Stamps: Birdsong (Inka,) Circle of Friendship (SU)
Paper: Memory Box Card, My Mind's Eye PP, Blush Blossom, Soft Sky, Stampers Select White
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Soft Sky, Blush Blossom, Copic Markers
Misc: Brads, Dew Drops, Pop Up Glue Dots, Stickles, Paper Piercer, White Gel Pen

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I think the layout of your composition is right on. I do think the gingham overpowers the paisley. That was my first reaction. But I think that little tweak will make it great. I love that this is an art for you and that you can see those subtleties. You're amazing! So want to have a card day with you!

    Love & misses,

  5. Rachel, I love your layout (and the little flower thingie you put the card in, been looking for one of those at yard sales) but I think the DP needs to have some black in it to complement your image, which is wonderful! I like the gingham, especially since it is blue (my fav)!
    But I wouldn't rip it apart or anything! :D Love your blog, you have some great things on here!
