Hi stampers! I have a reject card for you today! Doesn't mean it's bad but it's just not good enough for the SU Artisan Award contest. I've never entered the contest before but they have made some changes including the winners being on a special design team and getting free stuff! I'll enter about anything if I can win free stuff, lol! They also extended the deadline so I decided to just go for it! It's pushing me to be more creative and I'm really loving that. I got on a roll Saturday after I decided to enter but sadly due to work and everything I haent' had much time or inspiration this week! Hoping to work hard again this weekend though!
You have to enter a total of 10 projects (2 3D's, 5 cards, and 3 scrap pages). Strangely enough, I have my ideas for the 3D items and the cards, which I make most often are giving me the most trouble:-) I keep coming up with things but then after I get them on paper I don't think they are winners! Oh well, just means I'll have a lot to share, right? So, here is what will probably be a long list of AA rejects:-)
Stamps: Artistic etchings
Paper: Very vanilla, basic gray, poppy parade, attic boutique DSP, first edition DSP
Ink: Basic gray, daffodil delight, poppy parade, black craft
Accessories: crochet trim, antique and in color glimmer brads, oval punch, clear embossing powder
I don't dislike the card but it's just not what I pictured in my head...which happens all the time around here;-) I'm trying to make a variety of sizes and styles and this one I was going for vintage but I don't think it's vintage enough. I think I should have left of the glimmer brad too but in the quest for a WOW card I was trying to throw everything on it I could, ha!
Anyway, I have two cards down and three to go plus all the other items so I better get busy...especially since there are also a number of fun challenges I want to enter this week. Can you tell I'm a competitive person??? LOL!
