In today's episode of "It seemed like a good idea at the time", I was inspired by this card made by Jess Larsen for the Simon Says Stamp blog. Last week I made this:
Then I got distracted (more on that in a moment), so it sat there for a week. Tonight I decided it really needed more white on the background, but since it was TOO LATE for that, I just cut it out and made my own Polaroid look:
I was forced to make a square card since I refused to cut off the branches, and because I wanted it at an angle that left it too big for an A2 card base. And now this photo is giving me vertigo. If you're wondering how I did this, please check out Jess' post for the details. It's really easy. If you try it, though, add more white than I did.
Now for my distraction: I bought a house in Ohio. I DID! I'm planning to retire and move there eventually. The actual "when" is still in question, but I'm very excited. I'll be 30 minutes from my dad and brother, and since I grew up in Dayton, it's "home" to me. More on that as things progress.
I'm suffering from stamping withdrawal, so I hope to get back to some challenges this week so I have something else to share with you.
Thanks for stopping by!
