Phew what a title, I hope it hasn`t made you run for the hills lol.
Happy Easter Sunday to you all anyway.
I`ll start with my ramble and then you`ll see why I need some advice.
While I`m making cards to raise funds for the Candlelighters Trust (see sidebar) I seem to be on a mission to make the brightest cards on the planet. My reasoning behind this is that I want to produce something a bit different. Something you can`t get in the shops or even at craft stalls.
We have a lady sells her handmade cards in the shopping centre that I work in and, although they are lovely and appear to sell well, they are a little on the plain side. I decided that there may be a market for bright, colourful but slightly CaS cards. I am making some " normal" cards too but the confidence, or lack of, is starting to kick in and now I`m not sure I`m doing the right thing.
After making my bright yellow and black card the other day, I`ve followed the same basic design and made this one. Would you take a look and tell me what you think and whether it`s worth making a few more?
The panel is Pink Petticoat Brocade in Pistachio printed onto white card, with rounded corners.
I made the banner using a square die and reducing the size and a smaller square die at an angle to make the inverted `V`.Sentiment is by Flourishes and I`ve made a rolled rose using a Marianne Designs rose die.
Is that bright enough for you? What do you think and if you do like it, can you think of any other colour combo`s I could use?
I have ready to make up, orange and pistachio, pale green and pale pink, brown and pistachio, red and black,
pale green and lavender.
Thank you for sticking with me if you`ve got this far.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
