I adore this photo from Tuesday Trigger. I simply can't stop myself from creating for challenges like this...Is there a cure for this small obsession?
I started out with a very literal approach and had so much fun adding details after details. These whimsical flower stamps from Howl Are You (Hero Arts) have never been inked up yet, this seems to be the perfect time to use them.
I came up with card #1 which is based on what I "see".
Lately I like to keep my cards very flat because the postage really cost a lot more for cards with layers! That really discourage me to make layered cards!
Then I had another idea and decided to take a different approach with the same stamps, colors from the inspired Trigger.
I made card #2 which is based on how I "feel".
I embossed the flowers in white and water-colored the background.
Stickers Stitches (see bottom), buttons, sentiment, hand-stitching and a sequin.
Lastly, here's a thought: We are definitely our own worst critics. For example, I find these two Tuesday Trigger cards are so-so after looking at them some more! But when I first made them, I was super happy about them! What happened? If I keep doubting myself, I think this blog will be very empty! That's why I am still posting these two cards despite my own doubts/thoughts. I wonder if anyone feels that way?
Thanks for stopping by!
