This is my 2nd post for today - to see my Newton's Nook post, click HERE.
I love Debby Hughes' cards. They're always just perfect. And when I try to make a card to look like one of Debby's, I tend to fail miserably. :(
What do I like about my card? I like the butterfly (which I coloured with Distress inks and water, and covered with Wink of Stella.) I like the bold black sentiment (a very old Artee stamp - from 1998!) I like my attempt at gold dots.
What would I do differently next time? I would have
fewer ink splatters. I would have the ink splatters in a different colour to the
butterfly. I would ditch the flight path dots. I would use a different texture paste (not really liking the Martha Stewart texture paste - too grainy). I need to get a butterfly stamp with cleaner lines (even though I do love this butterfly, the lines are a bit fuzzy in places). And I would pick a bit of the falling snow die with fewer dots. But that's why I love the online card classes - I try things that are outside my comfort zone and so I learn new stuff! And that's definitely a good thing :)
