Tuesday Morning Sketches #542

Hello! Thank you for stopping by.  I do appreciate your visit.  The last revisited sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches - this one is Patti's pick.  She actually picked a favorite of mine, too.  I loved working with this sketch.

My card features a stamp from the February Simon Says Stamp kit, hello die from Hero Arts, an old Cuttlebug folder (paisley) and some ribbon from my stash.  This card turned out pretty okay, but I really struggled with it.  More on that to follow.

This feels very denim and red bandanna to me.

Now about this stamp set - I did "shorten" the image by stamping one side, masking then stamping the other side by moving the image over about an inch and half.  It worked for the most part.  I was happy that my idea worked.  But I was so unhappy coloring the image and I came to the realization that I really don't like this set and I have no idea what possessed to me to get.  I felt no joy in stamping and coloring and it made me wonder if stamping is still "my thing."

So here's my offering.  I am willing to sell the entire kit.  I only used the one stamp, so it shows, but everything else is untouched.  The papers, card stock, the bits and bobbles, the die, the Scor-Tape and the envelopes.  The only thing that's not included in this sale is the little lollipop.  I will sell it for exactly what I paid - $36.98. This is the kit and shipping.  If you're interested, please email me at stampedbym at gmail dot com.  First come first served.

Alrighty - we'll see you over at the TMS blog to play along with the team.  Be sure to leave them some love, they deserve it.  They do an amazing job.

Beautiful card, Melissa! I love all the pretty flowers framing your sentiment! Love your colour combo and banners! Sorry you weren't happy with stamping and colouring on this day, but maybe you were just having a bad day. I have days like this too, with no mojo at all! I hope you can sell your kit!

Well... I love how your card turned out and it does have a denim and red bandanna feel. It's very pretty despite the struggles you experienced, I believe we've all had one of those crafty dilemmas.

Your card is beautiful with the floral image and ribbon.

OMG! Your card certainly doesn’t look like you struggled with it! The first thing I thought of when I saw it was jeans and bandanas too and had a the same struggle/thoughts with the stamp set I used last week!
