I saw some amazing entries to Taheera’s Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge #3. I don’t think I have a chance this time, but I am enjoying playing along challenges once gain 🙂
I have two cards to share today. When I made the first one, I thought it was plain awful, specially because I had used a semi transparent orange-yellow DYMO label for the greeting. Later I changed it to a lemon yellow strip of card stock, which I think made the card more acceptable.
My second card has a similar design, but with softer colors:
Here I first masked off a 1/4″ border before stamping the background. I know it looks like sloppy stamping, but I intentionally wiped off some of the ink to get this look 🙂
Once again I ended up posting at the last hour before the challenge closes! So make sure to stop by Taheera’s blog tomorrow and check out the next challenge 🙂
