This year, my self-imposed challenge is Pro-Am Showdown, where I take on a commercially produced card I've received (the Pro) and see if I can beat the professionals at their own game with my amateur card.
Here is the card that inspired me:
|the original , professional card|
I used a Stamping Bella stamp that I saw on second-hand on Ebay - I got it quite cheaply - and I felt it had a similar feel to the original card. I embossed it in white and then watercoloured with Distress Inks. Watercolouring is not my forte so I'm hoping the blotchiness is part of the charm (haha!). The sentiment came from another set ( can't remember!) .
I'd like to enter:
