It's been a Funky Hand Day

I've been busy working on some Funky Hand samples today for an up and coming show on Create and Craft. The papers are from the "It's Funky Too" CD and I just love this Red Collection...it's a beautiful red and so vibrant.Well it's been a good and a bad day..good because I get the chance to play around and try to be creative with these gorgeous papers but the bad is that sometimes you can have an idea for a card in your head and when you translate it onto paper it just doesn't work....wasted so much time trying to make it work and where is it now..in the BIN...you win some, you lose some.

















The designs are fairly simple because the samples are intended to showcase the papers and the secret is don't be tempted to over-embellish. Maybe I should listen to my own advice sometimes and then no need to throw one in the bin.

  7. Aww, Kath.. Am feeling really guilty now. You wouldn't have done any more on the other card if I hadn't've suggested an extra squiggle. :o(

    It really was a nice card, and worthy of standing with these other two.

    Oh, well. (sigh)
