This is the first attempt at using the Concord and 9th Triangle Turnabout stamp which turned out OK. For two of the layers, anyway. I don’t think you can imagine how long it has taken me to produce this little snippet of coloured card….I must have spent close to two hours yesterday trying to get it to work for me. I looked at half a dozen YouTube videos, created a template – or four – as recommended by them. It all went well for the first stamp and the first turn, and the next stamp – then all went to pot! I haven’t got a clue what happened. It all seemed to line up before I inked it, then it just didn’t work……
The small example above is just two stamps, with one turn. I was very tempted to try another turn, but decided I liked the look of it as it was, and I didn’t want to get it wrong yet again that same day.
Anyhoo, the card is made with the colours from CAS Colours and Sketches. The challenge was to use Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, and Sweet Sugarplum. I only have the Rich Razzleberry ink, so used Crumb Cake instead of Sahara Sand, and used a piece of card which was Sweet Sugarplum.
As I was a little frustrated- just a little – I saw this sentiment from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous (Phrases 2) and thought it certainly matched the kind of mood I was in. It actually uplifted me. I certainly have the courage to imagine……..I just couldn’t execute the idea. Don’t worry, I’ll keep trying until I do succeed. I am not a ‘giver upper’!
I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:
CAS Colours and Sketches – colour challenge
The House That Stamps Built – colour palette
QKR Stampede – anything goes
Aud Sentiments challenge – anything goes and a sentiment
