I spend my life ....

...in a state of confusion so I had lots to choose from for my photograph today. I went with my work table after I had been stamping for the very first time. Which card should I stamp on? Which Ink should I use? What medium should I use to colour it with? Which papers should I use? How do I cut it straight? Arrrgghhh how can something so simple be so confusing??

confused - lacking order and difficult to understand

After a quick visit to my local craft shop to ask some questions I was sorted AND I didn't spend a penny there. So here it is my first ever attempt at stamping.

Insert Drumroll here!!



Credits: Stamp "For You Fairy" from Willow Designs (thanks Sharon), basic grey papers, making memories cheeky flat clip, American Crafts ribbon.
.
I'm not happy with the pink flower so I am going to change it for an orange one later on but other than that I'm quite pleased with myself and it also fits in with the DCM challenge - Oh So Juicy.

Rach I think that you must have a creative soul as it seems that anything you touch turns out well! Really glad to hear that you have been managing to do some cards for yourself.

You and my sweetie Rene would get along great. She loves doing "Crafty" type stuff. I used to when I was younger...but then I just kinda lost interest. (Or time...one of the two)

Great minds think alike re: confusion! LOL Oh and that card - I love it. Beautiful and your first attempt? Wow, Rach. Ok - I think the pink flower is fine - just my humble opinion LOL - it matches the pink flower of the fairy. But of course it probably looks different in the "flesh". Either way, great job. Hope you are feeling better today. x
