Another “Reject” sort of speak…

Yesterday I told you I was working on my cards for Stamp-a-Stack and that some cardstock was rejected… Well, even after completing a card in different colors, I was not completely happy with it. I walked away, and this morning looked at it again. And while it is a pretty card, it still was not what I had in mind (color-wise).

So here is my card that did not make the cut for Stamp-a-Stack this month:

swallowtail_not SAS

Since the card base is in Midnight Muse which is such a dark color that makes is difficult to write on, I added a piece of white Cardstock to the inside, and did a little stamping on the side:


I stamped the image in black StazOn ink and then I used re-inkers and an Aqua Painter to color it in. Don’t get me wrong… I do like this card A LOT!  But wait until you see what I made for Stamp-a-Stack Winking smile
