My friend Mary Dawn has been suggesting for awhile now that I try and get some of my creations submitted for publication, so a couple of weeks ago I took the plunge and decided to make a couple of cards...and that literally means a couple. I found that I just ran out of time and to tell you the truth I was really nervous trying to create something, so possibly not my best work, however that being said I really did like how this card turned out. Unfortunately, it was no picked up for publication, but at least it was good experience as to know what to do and well you just have to keep on trying.
So seeing as this card was not picked up for publication, I will publish it here for you all to enjoy.
Taking Kraft card stock, trimming to size to form a card, stamping the Envelope Pattern stamp that was inked with Frost White ink over the front of the card, setting this aside to dry. Next, trimming some October Afternoon patterned paper and the It's a Parade stamp, I inked it up with some black in and stamped onto the patterned paper. Wanting the parade line a little longer, I took my stamp-a-majig and relined up and once again stamped. Taking some distress ink, Peeled Paint and Broken China, I blended top and bottom of the patterned paper. I added a sentiment from the Thank You for Being My Friend stamp set to the patterned paper as well. I adhered the patterned paper to some, trimmed white card stock and then adhered this to the front of the card. Lastly, adding some jute to complete the card.
So if ever the chance arises for you to submit some of your creations for publication, I urge you to do so, it may be a nervous experience but it is one that helps you grow.
Okay so I am off to get a little dinner organised..some yummy pork chops are on the agenda tonight.
I will be back tomorrow to share a new digital image that is being released at Tiffany Doodles, and I have to say that first off I really did not know how I would tackle this image as it really is not my strong point, but I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this image, so be sure to check in to see what the image is.
