Our challenge this week should allow you to come out from your hiding places as it's an easy recipe
We are looking for cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance, which doesn't necessarily mean gems in all four corners, or any corners for that matter.
OK, so this is a very long post! You deserve a medal if you actually read to the end, and I don't mind if you just skip to the end for the cards!
Maybe I'm not such a good LIMette as everyone else or maybe its just because I had to think about it this time, because I'm sure I do 'off centre', but I actually found this quite difficult. I think I've managed it, but I'm not sure, so any suggestions for improvements would be welcome.
I also look at the other cards that have been posted, and so many already - how do you all find the time!? - and I know that I need a different sort of image stamp. So many lovely flowers and abstract images, I tend to go for whimsical / cute characters and I can't seem to make those work with this challenge. So another plea - where do you get your stamps and what makes do you recommend?
Onto the cards. I've made four - two with each set of stamps. I'll not say which is my favourite this week, instead I'll leave it up to you to pick your favourites (thats presuming that you like any of them of course!).
The first two are Craftwork Cards blanks, the stamps are: Dress by Inkadinkadoo - no name for image; sentiment - Sharing Sherbet by Pollycraft and on the second stamp I also coloured in the dress and outlined the sentiment with an image from a Basic Grey set (I think - I have a terrible habit of chucking the packaging!). The little flower is Prima.
The second two are on my normal square card blank. The stamps are: Robot - Papermania; background - Woodware - Retro Background; and I've not idea where the sentiment came from.
Bye for now.
