I received a few stamps from the lovely Lisa Carroll and decided I needed to ink them up right away (the good).
Before I went to bed I had inked up a lace stamp with Hero Arts Iris Chalk Ink on a piece of purple vellum and when I came back to it in the morning the image had bled and distorted and gave me a weird looking background with no lace image visible (the bad).
Here it is on the card.
Well I decided to use that background anyway and embossed Hero Arts Lattice image ontop of the bad looking background and I kind of like how it turned out (the good).
But then I took pictures of my card and I couldn't get the colours to be true. Do you ever make a card that just not photograph well? I get a few of those every year and todays card is one of those (the not so pretty).
The purple is a little too vivid and the felt flower is not that bright, it's actually the same colour as the lace.
But I didn't let any of these things stop me from posting my card. That 's just the way things are sometimes...
So I'm submitting this card for the Moxie Fab Doilies & Lace Challenge and the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.
And that is my tale of The Good, The Bad & The Not So Pretty!
Thanks for stopping by!
