I hope you are all well and enjoying the fine weather we are having this morning.
I have not long got back in after taking the dog for his walk. It was a bit on the cool side just nice for a brisk walk, we went over the fields to Mapperley village then down into Shiply park. We stopped for a coffee at Derby lodge and then back home again via Bell Lane. On part of the walk we go through some woods, I love that part with all the birds singing in the trees. And if I'm lucky I don't see another sole until we get into Shiply Park, today was one of those mornings.
Well onto today's cards.
Have you ever wished you hadn't started something........ I have.......This weeks Challenge at the Less is More web site..... LOL
The challenge this week is a one layer card and the theme this week is DOODLING...
Oh goody gum drops I thought. I can get out my Zig Art & Graphic twin tip pens for this one. Not because I can draw but because they make drawing flowers a doddle. And so a card idea formed in my head. So off I went creating my card....
Here is the card I made.
Three cards later, and all in the bin, for one reason or another I managed this one....
This card didn't look like the one in my head though.
I drew the flowers with my Zig Art pens and then stamped the leaves but I don't like the finished result and I don't know why...... So I had to have another try.
I drew the line of flowers first then traced them onto a scrap of paper and masked them off then stamped around them. I then drew in the other flowers after. I'm still not happy with my efforts but this card is a little bit like the original one I had in my head.
I am beginning to wish I hadn't started this or tried something simpler..... But you know in my noggin IT WAS SO SIMPLE....... ARRRRGGGGG........
Five hours...... FIVE hours I spent yesterday trying to get the card I wanted .... So in the end I gave up.... it had beaten me.
All I can say though, is, I have had a go, and have enjoyed playing along .
Well that's it for this post. I am off now to have a look at all the lovely cards that have been created by all the other LIM'etts
I will be back soon with another card or two. Thank you for stopping by TTFN.
