Sucked in

YES SUCKED IN...you know how it is when you are cruising through blog-land and you see an artist make a card and it just wow's the living daylights out of ya....and you dream that just maybe if you watch the video 4329 times you might just have a chance of casing that card reasonably well?

Well, it happened to me with this Fabulous card by Sandy Allnock featuring the Hello Lovely stamp set by Concord and Ninth.  I paid 24.00 USD for that stamp set, it is a larger set and has an intricate image, but for what I like to do...its one stamp and a handful of sentiments...a lot of cash when looking at my crafting budget.  IT IS SO WORTH IT!

I spent the day with my fellow coloring enthusiast Peggy, and we watched that video over and over and we colored.  I admit to tearing up and tossing out two attempts.  I don't have the copic color group Sandy used, I went with a warmer set of browns...because I had those and I had enough for some decent shading and depth.

So here is my totally and absolutely cased card. I added an extra word to the sentiment, and gold dots instead of the dark ones, I mounted it as opposed to a one layer card. I'm calling my the fall version of her winter white card.


After finally conquering this mono-chromatic "white" bloom; ya all know I had to go for some bright bold colors too.

Here's the proof...most card goofs can be saved...I colored a bloom to the upper left in red when it should have been yellow...so I just cut that portion out.  I think it makes for an interesting card.

Have you ever gotten obsessed with someone's creation to the point you had to have the products and had to make one for your self?

Thanks so much for stopping by.

  4. Good for you actually sitting down & doing it! I get all excited watching the video or seeing a card, but never get around to trying it! Your cards are gorgeous & maybe I will end up "needing" that stamp set--haha! The warm tones card is my favorite--amazingly elegant! Today I felt that way after watching Kelly's video on SSS, but of course I haven't actually tried her technique yet!

  12. Oh my yes, I've done it many times ... though my results were not this successful, Cat. This shades-of-brown bouquet is outstanding... the colors, too, but that first one is outstanding!!!
