LONG post ahead!!!
Hello, Let me ask this question before I begin. Do you ever have a crafting day that just doesn’t play nicely? This was that day! It’s all Darnel’s fault! (LOL) You see, I LOVE to play along with the Twofer Challenge as I like that it pushes me to think outside the box, and had I not wanted to play, I wouldn’t have sworn extremely loud yesterday and I may not have slammed my fist down on my craft table. (I think I have some pent up anger from all that is wrong in the world with no end in sight.) I am going to use that as my excuse anyways. What is that shirt I keep seeing on IG say- ” I’m Fine, It’s Fine, Everything is Fine. I think I need to make one of those for myself. LOL In all seriousness….love you Darnell and the Twofer Challenge. Onto my little story.
I have a very old stamp (picture below) from Gina K Designs and I knew it was going to be just perfect for my circles that I chose to use for this challenge.
I started with this card…….YUCK! Colors didn’t gel one bit. I decided to not give up and try again. A little better, but as you can see I didn’t line up my card piece correctly in my Misti. Plus I messed up my pattern. No big deal right, I just won’t use the entire sheet. So I forged on!
I ended up with this card. Better, but I really don’t love it much at all.
Then, I was ready to start my Twofer. I had an idea that was going to take some time. Everything was going swimmingly and all I had left to do was the sentiment. Yep, you know where I am going, don’t you?
Here is where I may have said a naughty word or three. 😉 I have noticed in the past that Archival Black Ink sticks a bit to Oxide Panels and when you pull off the stamp the ink splatters, that or I pressed too hard, or both! Once I gathered myself and went and whined to the hubster, I was determined to salvage some part of this card. Here is what I did. I guess it’s time to cover it up and make a square card.
Now the tree is growing right out of the Gulf of Mexico. LOL
Thanks for sticking with me through this post. I don’t want you to think I have a huge temper and I swear like a sailor. That is really sooooo not the case. Just every once in a while things slip out. LOL However, I think and hope you fellow crafters agree, I certainly had a justifiable cause. 😉
Here are both of the arch enemies together.
Supplies: I have a huge mix… Gina K, MFT, SU, Papertry Ink, Lawn Fawn, and Memory Box.
Taking the day off from stamping…I have earned it! LOL.
Here’s to better crafting days ahead, Nanc’
