A Non-Valentines Card! Yay!!

Hi Everyone! Just a card I made this evening! I had colored the image a while ago but it was one of those that I felt didn't come out too well and it sort of went into my "junk" pile. I decided it didn't look too bad so I decided to use it. My "junk" pile is a pile of images that I've colored but I feel need a little fixin' up. They're images that I smudged, overcolored or just don't look right. I rarely ever throw anything away. I usually keep them and try to fit them later when I have the time.

Anyway. . .I colored the image using markers with markers on watercolor paper. I then did a bit of color wash to color the background a bit. You can't see it but I went over parts of the image with a glitter pen to give it a little bit of sparkle.

I'm very disappointed. . .the stamping business can be a "dog eat dog" world. It's a little sad. I'm not going to get into it but sometimes this business have mean spirited people. Very disappointing. . .anyway, you know who you are.


Hope y'all have a wonderful hump day everyone!! Until later. . .

I do the same thing, Maria! I hardly ever throw anything out unless it's one of those mistakes that can't be fixed no matter what.
Your card is beautiful! I love this color combo and the smudging on the flowers! Have a great day!

THIS was in a junk pile? Crazy! ;0) I know what you mean though. I have piles of things I did and didn't feel like using. It's all about mood sometimes, hey? Hope you're feelin' better, :0) Mel

Can I just say you have GREAT stuff and I love your sketches?!?! I visit everyday just to see them! And is it okay if I post a link to your goody-bag tutorial on my blog? I love that and taught it to my mom's group today, and posted my version on my blog. I credited you, of course...it's awesome! I'm so sorry people weren't so nice...that's just the pits. You have great stuff, and you're an amazing artist...keep it up! You're invaluable and irreplacable...and so appreciated!

Saw your card on my rss reader but didn't have a chance to comment yet til now. I love this card. So pretty (just like your other ones!).

I have a junk pile too. Not a big pile but it's there :D

Mean people suck! Don't let it get you down, Maria. I LOVE the colors and washed effect of the card. My scrap pile isn't very big (yet), but as it grows, I'd like some ideas on how you all manage it. Do you just pile it all in one container? Separate it into similar colors? What do you use to store it? Anyone, anyone? ;-)

AnnMarie said...

Hiya Maria! You know, people that are mean usually do it out of jealousy! You are a great artist and you do beautiful work! Don't let little mean people get to you! Hold your head high because you are amazing and so are your works of art! Big hug!

This is a beautiful card! I can't believe the image was in your junk pile! You are amazingly talented!

How could anyone be mean to you when you're so sweet? Don't let it get to you. Some people just have nothing better to do. You are wonderful.

Thanks for always inspiring me! Blessings to you,
Shannon
