Good evening bloggers.
1st of all I need to make an apology – I've just realised it's been two weeks since I posted. Where has time gone???
Some of you will already know I got my first card commission the other day WHOO HOO!
I was told it was for a guy, he's turning 40, and he's loves Bruce Springsteen. Now when anyone says Bruce Springsteen to me I instantly think "Born in the USA" and Denim. I came up with the idea of making an American flag but using denim, coloured red, for the stripes – sounds like a great idea but in practice it was awful. It looked really messy and way too dark so after a couple of nights umming and ahhing over it, in the bin it went.
Plan B KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) there is nothing wrong with red card!! Although in hindsight I would have printed them off with the white stripes as a whole not as individual stripes that I then had to stick onto the card topper – nightmare trying to get the spacing correct and get them straight (What was that about Keep It Simple Stupid!)
Anyhoo here it is.
