It's Super Sketchy Sunday over at 365 cards, and here's the sketch we were to base our cards on:
I'm not crazy about my result. The idea was so clear in my head, but it didn't come out the way I envisioned it. The components are OK, but they don't seem to work together. Eh, happens to almost everyone...
I like the burlap on the card (dollar store find) but don't like the colour... it's too bright. Unfortunately the only other choice (yellow) was even brighter.
I do like the buttons, which are made out of shell (and were a great find in my mum's button box - thanks Mum!) I think that I should have matted the crackle paper, for more depth and impact.
Oh well, tomorrow's another day... with another challenge, and I get the day off with pay! Yay! Statutory holidays!!! I plan on crafting for 8 hours, all the while giggling gleefully and mumbling "I'm getting paid for this"... well, that and sleeping in. :)
