I’ve watched many card-making challenges go past in my feed reader; always thinking that I’d give them a go, but never getting around to it in time (or simply forgetting about them). This time I was determined to actually make a card, possibly even in time to enter it…
I’m not one hundred per cent happy with this card — it’s okay and it will be used. I’m not quite sure what I’d do to improve it: I would have liked to have had some brighter glitter to hand, and maybe I wouldn’t bother with the silver watercolour in the background if I made it again. I don’t dislike it, it just could have been better somehow.
I really need more practice using the stamp n’ bond to stick the glitter down… And better lighting for photographing cards in the evening…
