Look at this. Do you have one of these? It is a plastic tub where I put all of my aborted attempts; whether it be because of an ink smudge, (usually the case) badly positioned matt, oozing glue or just because , after hours of work, I simply don't like it. I live in hope that each and every one of these poor things will be resurrected and live on in another guise - complete and pleasing to the eye without a hint of what lies beneath the background paper or embellishment!
And here is such a card.
Admittedly it was just two little ink marks that spoilt it. Those gems have hidden them to perfection! This card was made a Stampin' Up party and with the help of Elaine Brainwood (Local Stampin' Up demonstrator)
Such pretty paper and stamp. We used an embossing folder - Square Lattice. It gives such a lovely textute to the paper making it look a bit like wallpaper. Of course, I had to have it.
Anyway, I have yet again justified to myself, the need to keep the plastic box of "disasters"
