Thank you!!! Thank you to everyone who voted for me in Gallery Idol!!! I never thought, in a million years, that I would have the opportunity to compete in a competition like this. To make the Top 20 was shocking and overwhelming and then to make Top 10...well, that was the icing on the cake!!!
I had a blast, spending time each weekend, thinking up ideas for my next project!!! And the comments of support and the emails I received were lovely and heart warming. What a sweet group of crafting friends I have!!!
I wanted to share my cards that did NOT make the cut for the three rounds I played...
Round 2: Father's Day
This was the card I was going to use, but right after I photographed it, I dropped an ink pad into it. So even though, I had the photo, if I did happen to make it through and my card was to be submitted for publishing...it would not work...with ink all over it. Yes, I nearly wept when that happened as it took a long time to conceive and create this card!!! LOL!
Round 3: Background Stamping
I created two other cards for this challenge. I wanted to cover my background stamping with vellum but in the end, I decided to create a bold card!! Using no vellum. Man, I found this particular challenge very difficult!!
Round 4: 10 Embellishments
This was going to be my more clean and simple card for the 10 embellishment card. I decided to create a fancier version of this...to really stretch myself! LOL!!! I was so pleased with what I created as it was out of my comfort zone. Not something I would usually create at all!!! But that was the fun of this challenge, getting me outside of MY box!! It was awesome and so much fun to challenge myself in that way!!
Thank you to everyone who voted for me!!! And a special thank you to Nicole Rixon of Sweet Stamps, for the shout out on the Sweet Stamps FACEBOOK page!!! That meant so much to me!!!
