My card features the ADORABLE stamp set Space Cadet. I love the cute little aliens in this set. I struggled with this card though as I just couldn’t get it to work (in my eyes). My first background saw me stamp a gazillion little stars (okay, SLIGHT exaggeration!) in versamark and then colour over the top with distress inks. I decided they looked a little plain so I white heat embossed more stars over the top but it looked odd so I tossed that idea out. I went back to the distress ink background and then spritzed it with water. It came up okay.
So here’s the card for today. I just cannot tell why it doesn’t quite work. I’m hoping it is one of those things where if I stop looking at it and then come back a while later I will suddenly either love it, or work out what I need to do to “fix” it. lol We’re so picky, we crafters, aren’t we?
Having looked at the gallery, I *know* none of my entries are contenders this week. That’s okay! I think participating in challenges like this really help to expand your skills and encourage you to try something outside your comfort zone. Now, I’m looking forward to the next challenge….although I cannot say for sure that I won’t try this sketch again! lol
