True to form even my picture is crooked. It is a wonder I don't walk with a permanent slant. I also am not centred with the card which also is so true to my form. This will drive my hubby crazy......so it was well worth making it crooked:) I can sit for hours trying to make it straight and it still will turn out crooked. I used a ruler on this damm card too. I am true to my calling which is not a true artist as a true artist would have thrown this card away because they are freakishly wanting perfectionism. My mom is one and my hubby is another which is why I can say they are true artists. I rarely work with patterned paper. I just can't wrap my mind around it(sorry for the pun, you know-wrap-chuckle, chuckle). I will be making 4 more but this is my first one. I used the stars papers and coloured it green with tombow marker and paint that gives this pretty sheen. I used a second patterned paper in 4 strips to set it off. The middle is a peel off showing a town. I coloured it all in green tombow markers and I tried-the word meaning TRY to evoke the Currier and Ives feeling but using green instead of blue. I took a very pale green shimmer paper and used the cuddlebug for the background added a jewel and a peel off star and-Voila! my card for March..the first of 5.
