Handmade Cards


I made these cards last night.  Although they are very simple and should be quick to make, I kept making a mess – the black ink mugged, the watercolour paint splatter didn’t work, an image wasn’t stamped properly etc etc and Iended up throwing away 4 cards before completing these 3.  I added some gold to the original design (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/164099980150820261/).


Although I love simple design and would buy a very simple card in a shop, by some reason, I feel very simple design doesn’t look good when I make cards. It’s probably because the paper quality isn’t as good as the cards I would buy (even though I’m using the best available for card making) and also the images stamped and printed have different feel to them.  However, I do love these cards,which are probably the simplest cards you would make.  I think it works because the images of the stamps are arty and somehow have a feel of printed images.  Unless you make so many mistakes like I did, you can make one in less than 10 minutes.
