here, I only remembered when I went up to take a picture of my workspace on Wed. night. Then, saw what I had worked on over the weekend, and thought "hmmm, people will see this who can help me out" so I snapped this shot of a card that shows great promise, but I'm just not finishing well. And I fiddled some more, then realized that dinner was still on the stove...and you guessed it; never took the shot of the workspace...
So I hope I'm not breaking any of Julia's WOYWW Rules!! But I really do need advice on where to go with this card.
The stamp is by Magenta, and I colored it with Distress Markers and a waterbrush. I used Tim Holz's music texture fade, which was colored with his new Distress Metallic Brass stain. At first I sorta liked the monochromatic feel, but the photo is more than "blah". but a red ribbon/fiber might me too much. Any thoughts? Ditch the embossed piece and go with a dark red layer? Color the bird red-(nah, not a cardinal) I haven't gotten the hang of using sketches, or all the layering techniques other than rectangular direct ratio type...I see them in magazines and blogs, but just can't seem to recreate them. So... here I am, with a great stamp and no clue what to do.
So feel free to chip in your 2 cents worth, then stop by Julia's to portal into so truely inspiring workdesks! Have a great week...I look forward to your suggestions.
