Bubbles and Squeak


Sunglasses at the ready cos as you can see its a bit bright not sure what I was thinking and gosh did I struggle with this card. In the end it was a case of stepping away from the card and if it wasn't the fact I didn't have time to make another I think it would have ended in the bin.
One of my major probs is I hid the pink roses under the image so I lost my contrast colour and it went downhill from there. The stamp is of course a Penny Black called Bubbles and Squeak.
The papers I think are Echo Park and I used the Spellbinders curved die for my border. The leaves and flowers are using the Phlox leaves from Memory Box and EK success punch.

  40. Hi Debby,
    Oh it's tough when a card doesn't go as you plan, but I have to say that I would frame it and put it on my wall and not bin it - it is brilliant! Love the colours and the diecuts - and of course, your colouring is always amazing!

  41. Another fabulous card Debbie and should definitely not be anywhere near the bin, but I know exactly what you mean when things just don't go right with a project.
    Sometimes when you step away from it for a while it looks fine when you go back.

  43. I love this card so much, Debby, that I just had to pin it to one of my Pinterest boards. I don't want to forget what it looks like, because I may have to case it one day. I so want to try your method of making the little Penny Black critters look dimensional.
