The MAKE A CARD FROM A CARD GONE BAD technique.....



So the SUO blog challenge topic for tonite was use a technique you never tried before. This is my technique. Sit down with a certain technique in your head that you tried, but not in a very long time, because that was also permissable. Make a card, and look at it and say, WHOA, card gone BAD. Ugly, ugly, ugly. Now let's see what I can do to switch directions and make something from this pretty off white pinafore design, but this "technique" part, it has to GO with a capital GO. Start messing around paper piecing some flowers on blushing bride and pear pizazz cardstock. Do some fussy cutting and put them along the bottom of the pinafore, hmmmm.....not too shabby. That looks really really pretty, I like!! Then, come to think of it, what the heck technique is THIS that you never tried before, and girlfriend, you are fresh out of TIME!!! So my technique is make a card out of a card gone BAD....go ahead, it's a fun new technique where you learn to not waste paper, but my former main image, it's just too ugly for words, and it found it's way to the circular file. But this card? Not too shabby, right? The "Make a card from a card gone bad technique" - my very own brand new technique. Go make yourself one, and save a tree!! Happy Stamping, Until next time, Karen
