Ugliest Card Ever

I can't believe I'm posting this to my blog. I made this card tonight for someone at my church who is in the hospital. I'm sure she will think it's just lovely, the jury is still out with me. This is using some sneak peek products form the summer mini, as well as paper from the Four Frames promotion going on right now with Stampin' Up. As always, if you would like to place an order please email me at robbysmommyga@aol.com I also used a sketch from Sketch Frenzy Fridays. This technique I had seen before but never tried. I colored the stamped image with Stampin' Write Markers and then spritzed the image with water. It gives it a softer watercolor image on a solid stamp. Thanks for looking.

Stampin' Up products used:

Old Olive Cardstock

Baja Breeze Seam Binding

Triple Layer Flower Punch

Whisper White Cardstock

Fabulous Florets Stamp Set

Paisley Petals DSP

Pearl accents

Flower Garden Embossing Folder


Non Stampin' Up Products Used: Water Spritzer Bottle

I wouldn't say it is ugly. Maybe using the peach ribbon would help. I still like it and I am glad you decided to join us this week at SFF.

It definitely isn't the ugliest card ever! I'm thinking the only change I would make would be to punch the 3 rectangles out with the Modern Label punch. Something about them bugs me and I think that shape would help. A Baja Breeze background instead of the green might be better too. It really is a nice card though.

I love the technique you used! I haven't gotten to play with it in a bit, but you've just inspired me!
