Have you ever made a card, then wondered what went wrong when it was all finished? I'm my worst critic. My family will tell you that the first thing I do when I show them a project is point out all of the mistakes.
I love the main image on this card. It a fun stamp by Saturated Canary. She has such a sweet face! This image was a lot of fun to color. It provided lots of challenges with small spaces. Her dress required lots and lots of blending!! I was so excited about how the folds turned out on her dress. I love her stockings! I wish I could color myself a pair. These are all positives right? So what happened....
I had no idea what to do with her once I finished coloring her. I experimented with lots of ideas. The biggest issue was the colors I used didn't match any of the card stocks I had on hand. I have been inspired by others who have made all white cards. That didn't end well. After hours of creating.... and a very patient, encouraging husband looking at every draft.... this is the final result. The end result isn't horrible... the journey was painful. I'm not giving up! I think will color another Candy Cane Girl and create another chapter in her story.
