Okay, so after 963 attempts to case the amazingly talented Anita's card featured at TIME OUT Challenge #12,
I came 'this close' to giving up. So many elements to choose from, but...water-colouring was a no go; stenciling was an epic fail; embossing taxed my inability to stamp straight. I pretty much tried something every day since the challenge opened and egads! Nothing "fruitified" (that's one of my mom's words...she meant 'fruition' in the context of the conversaton but I think fruitified is excellent!).
So, with things in card-land not going well, I took a little step back to re-think my perspective. I considered not joining the challenge, but that lasted all of a fleeting thought. Instead, I went into 'default' mode: mini cards! Yayyy for minis! Then I remember a NBUS Fri-die that I have fro CAS_ual Fridays, so I die cut the insert three times, gave them some 'ombre' inking, added a hello sentiment and...done.
Far cry from what I was aiming to do (by a long shot), but I still wanted to play because I think Anita is AWESOME x AMAZING!!
Of course, now that I'm posting this at the last minute, a whole slew of new ideas have pinged...Isn't that the case!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
