Hello there. Today I am sneaking a card into Darnell's 2nd Annual April Fool's Boo-Boo Hop & NBUS (Never Before Used Shtuff) Challenge.
I make A LOT of bloopers on cards but they go straight into the bin along with me telling myself how stupid I am and that I should concentrate on what I am doing rather than being nosey and people watching out of my daft (craft) room window!!
So this card is made with a set of stamps that I won recently. It is called Kathryn's Big Wishes - Dee's Artsy Impressions and is from Stamplorations.
I coloured the images using Copic markers and die cut using the matching dies.
I created the background by die cutting a cloud from Mama Elephant Landscape Trio and then sponging some distress ink over the top so I got a soft cloud effect. I then cut two more clouds out using the same die and layered them on top.
I heat embossed the sentiment along with the white splodges on the balloon and then cut it all out using WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die to create the scalloped card front.
Now I very nearly did make a blooper because I stuck all the bits on the card and then realised that I hadn't stamped the balloon string - eek! Yikes! That meant I had to freehand it using a pen! Now if you told me to draw a line on a bit of scrap paper, that would not be a problem but knowing that I had to draw it on a finished card....my hand was shaking with nerves!! I managed it though!!
And there is more one NBUS thing I have used today and that is.....I went MANUAL on my camera!!!! (No, not MANUEL from Fawlty Towers, although my camera skills are probably about on a par with his!). I didn't have a Scooby what I was doing but I actually think there is an improvement. I twiddled about a bit with dials and nobody shouted 'Put the camera down Wendy and step away from it'!!!!!!!!!!
Hop on over to Darnell's challenge - there are some funny bloopers as well as some amazing cards.
