CD Sunday Challenge - Photo Inspiration


Hi,
What a terrible day here,  the sun was shining when I woke up then it went in about 8 am, it started to rain about 10 am,  and its not stopped yet.  Its windy and  feels more like a winters day than summer.   I know it might be good for the garden but not when you have to go out in it.  Perhaps we will get summer in the winter,  who knows?
Anyway back to the challenge which I feel I have failed at challenge.  I made a different shape this week a gate fold.  Using the colours from the picture,   I spent a long time looking for an image, this is the nearest I got to the colours and even then it has little pink in it,  its from Joanna Sheens CD Enchanted Dreams,  The backing paper is from stock and is a green damask paper,  well at least that was the right green,  I matted the image on dark blue card,  the ribbon is a green with blue sheen on it. I did glitter her wings dress and green sea weed at the bottom of the image. The die cuts I had looked too white on the card, so I took my pro markers and coloured them,  only the blue now looks wrong,  Sorry the photo may not be brilliant but its quite dark here and that one is the best the camera will do. So this is my effort with the challenge and its a failure,  its better to try than not try at all.
Hope the sun is shining where ever you are in the world,
Until we meet again take care
                                     Hugs
                                  Margaret

  9. This is definitely not a failure Margaret, its a delightful card and you got the colours just right. I think it is a difficult challenge, I also searched for hours to get the right colours. Michelle x

  10. I once read that if you never fail, you never learn anything - I'm sure the even if you didn't achieve quite what you set out to, you learnt something along the way.

  11. I think I need to put myself on the naughty step for making it such a difficult challenge this time around. I don't think you have failed at all Margaret. This is a pretty card, and I love the image you have chosen. Thank you for sharing with us.
