Last night I spent 3 hours trying to make a card and altering a tin.
7 cards ended up in the bin, and the tin...???? still not right
The alcohol ink didn't want to play , the ribbon came off. The stamped lady on the lid didn't like being gesso'd and what else went wrong after that.I'll go back to my knitting or crochet.. less frustrating.
Anyway the day before I managed this ATC which could do for the ArtyGirlz challenge anything but a card

What a shame about the card and tin - I know that feeling! The ATC is gorgeous. x

Don't you just hate it when that happens! But this card is beautiful; I love the color scheme. I've always wanted to try altering a tin, but I've been too intimidated to step out of my comfort zone. You are braver than I!

Wow wat schattig, jij kan er wat van hoor, het lukt mij nog steeds niet om iets te fabriceren op stempelgebied, maar het komt nog wel hoor.

lieve groet Lilian

Some things don't work no matter how hard you try. I move them to one side and look at them on a different day. It's amazing how many things can be saved when seen in a different light. Love your ATC though!
