The Addicted to CAS challenge #76: hero
and the Inkspirational Challenge #95:anything goes with silver
Quite a few challenges , again, sorry.
Saturday I was so dissapointed and saddened I felt all my creative juices flow out of me in an instant.
I had a craft fair Saturday and was all geared up to go even got one of those cardmills from a second hand shop, so I'd look more professional and it would be easier for people to browse.
BUT I sold 5, yes 5 cards and that's less than one per hour! and certainly not enough to cover the costs of being there...
I put my heart and soul into these cards and, although I got a good few compliments, noone was buying. On the upside the girls across the path from me didn't seem to have any customers either.
I'm the only one with modern, CAS cards and they stand out, everyone picks your brain and then go home and make the cards, instead of buying them :-(
It's not even about the money, but as this is card #751 you can see why I need to try and sell some, upside would be I can buy more creative goodies...
Anyway rant over I took Sunday off and now am back into the flow of things I hope.
I'm going to give this card to my boyfriend as he helped me all day with setting up the stall, carrying the heave stuff and as I was supposed to give demonstrations a lot of re-inkers and paper, scissors, you knwohalf the craftroom ;-)
He got me food as I couldn't leave my stall, well you get the point, he's my hero.
I thought star, the sun is a star and has the color of fire, oh that's the Less is more challenge, and silver glittery paper diecuts to give the card some shimmer.
I used re-inkers from Distress inks for the watercoloring of the star (squeezed lemonade, ripe persimmon and festive berries)
I've used the sentiment from My Favorite things bold statements and a star diecut from Nellie Snellen.
I mounted the smaller top panel with foamdots to the card base.
