Ain’t Got A Thing….

2013 March 29

or I’m thinking it should be “Thang”.  That has been the phrase rumbling around in my head this week.  I tried, really tried, to come up with something fabulous for the new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.   The new challenge is Easter or Spring  and with Easter this Sunday, I knew I wanted to use Sweet N Sassy’s Rugged Cross.

Fabulous it is not but I finished it.  And I’ve promised to share the good, the bad and the ugly when I started this blog…..so here it goes.

Been a while since I’ve colored with my Copics.  I was pretty happy with they way the coloring turned out only to almost mess it all up by die-cutting too close, so I had to hand trim around the image.  Then I was at a loss.  I had my tray of PanPastels out which prompted me to apply some onto Neenah card stock scraps.

I love the way it looks.   And that was all the creativity I was able to muster.  Granted, I was working on this card in the evening and we all know that I am not very creative in the evening.  My creativity strikes in the morning.  I almost wasn’t going to finish the card but I really didn’t want to add another “unfinished” project to my pile of “unfinished” projects. Anyway, I popped the cut out cross onto foam mounting tape and adhered it onto the pan pasteled card stock.

You see, a plain, simple card.  I look at it and know something is missing.  You know that feeling that tells you this just isn’t working.  Who knows!  I’ve colored this image in duplicate so when I get that card making mojo back, I’m trying again.  Now, for some wonderful inspiration, head over to The Sisterhood of Crafters and be inspired. 

Most of all, have a blessed Easter weekend. 

Until next time….

    I don't think a thing is missing.  It's GORGEOUS!  Your coloring is superb, as are your cutting skills. LOVE your background papers, especially the floral one.  Happy Easter!
