This card is for the sketch, the stripes and silhouette and the mix-what if. I drew the stripes on with ruler and black Copic at the bottom of the deer tag, the mix is the Metallic markers on black glossy and the white pen, Versafine ink, Color Burst. The sketch is obvious.
This is either the ugliest card I've done and I hate it or it is just weird and different and I kinda like it...the jury is still out! I did get my sentiment on a bit crooked which bugs the heck out of me but I was completely done with everything when I stamped it (with a stamp aligner BTW) so I wasn't willing to start over! I have discovered that I am OCD though and that crooked sentiment will bug me till the cows come home!
Thanks for looking! I'm assuming you looked if you are in fact reading this, heehee!

Wow. Love the vibrant colors. I know what you mean about being OCD with my cards. That is actually why I struggle with CAS cards because if I mess up I have to FIX it which translates to lots of layers and lots of stuff to cover up. LOL. The dots on your trees look amazing. Thanks for joining in with my WHAT IF? challenge. If I might say a word to the jury "this is fabulous"

Fabulous card with so many different things to look at. The colour combination is incredible. I must join your OCD club for those that are obsessed with straight lines etc. Your club must be growing fast.

This is unique and creative and not weird at all! I LOVE this! The colors are so rich, bold and deep! These are the effects that on the rare occasion I get them, I never know exactly what to do with it. I did chuckle about the sentiment and that we, as stampers need to point out our mistakes. You realize no one would have noticed if you had not said anything. Love the white gel pen on your trees too! I may just have to case this!
Well......the fun part of photographing our cards is that we can "hide" certain things with card angles,etc. I don't see the sentiment as crooked in this photo. I also don't see anything ugly about it. :) I keep scrolling up to take another look, it's so fascinating!
