A very simple card for a friend’s Mum. Don’t you just love Penny Black flowers? They work so well with felt tip pens.
On KCUK we started a Sketch Challenge this week – well, Dot did – it’s not my cup of tea but I thought I’d have a go… it was a disaster! WAY too prescriptive for me and I just don’t have the equipment to do what everyone else does. I also have a love/hate relationship with flowers – I think they’re fab in the right place, but unfortunately, some people have come to see them as a staple and so they stick them where they just don’t belong. Consequently, I’m a confirmed non flower user… a (way over the top) reaction to what I see as overuse and misuse – sounds like the way I feel about P offs???? I’m not really this stubborn all the time – honestly – but I just get a bit tired of seeing everyone’s creations starting to look the same because they all do what everyone else is doing… rant over!!
Here are my crap cards. First image is a scan and my scanner doesn’t do 3D, but the colours are almost accurate, though they don’t show the gorgeous teal of the paper (yes, I said PAPER). Second image is a photo, adjusted slightly, but the colours are way off, as you’ll see when they’re together.
