I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! I will be leaving tomorrow on a business trip to Orlando for a few days. I thought I would have a few days without any posts here, but I decided to play along with The Greeting Farm CHA relay that kicked off yesterday. Each day they release a new digi stamp and you have until the next day at six pm to do a card/project and upload to the gallery. If you participate by the deadline, you get the next day's digi free! The Greeting Farm stamps have always been a favorite of mine and I love the digi's they are releasing. So get ready for some TGF image cards while I am away!!
My card today is one that I struggled with and it took me way too long to finish. The first image I colored had a spot outside of her leg that I could not get off with my blender. This one I had issues with the color blending. I have several types of papers that I use for coloring with Copics and here lately my go to favorite doesn't seem to have the same finish as it did before. The blending seems to be off. Then again it could be that some of my go to Copic colors are drying out.... Will have to work on that!
The lighting seemed off on this card when I went to upload and I started to redo the "photo session" but I decided this card was not meant to be perfect from the start, so it is, what it is.
Do you ever struggle with being a perfectionist? I must learn to ease up up mine!!
The stamp is My Favorite Things' My Balloon from the Pure Innocence line. These stamps are so adorable! Her dress is paper pieced and the rest is colored with Copics. I added a little heart scalloped balloon that is made with a MS punch. The image panel is cut out with Spellbinders circle dies and the edges sponged while still in the die. The papers are from the Basic Grey Bittersweet stack. The layout is from this weeks CCEE sketch challenge.
Have a great day!
