Another overdone card...


It's becoming a habit. Really. Either my cards are really simple with a few elements or dramatically overdone with lots of texture and bling. *LOL*

I started with good intentions [obviously..*winks*]...

"Hmmm...how about a little Golden fiber paste with The Crafter's Workshop on watercolour paper? for a little white on white texture?"
"Nice. But that white on white is so subtle. It might not show up well when you photograph it..."
"Good point. I'll just add a little mist with shimmer...it will show up in the crevices and look pretty!"
"Eh...how about a little lace for a peek-a-boo effect?"
"Excellent idea!"
"Time to glue down the patterned papers...but wait, I think some mica flakes would add a little more in-your-face kind of shimmer..."
" Okay, let's do an embellishment cluster. The usual...bloom, pearls, leaf. Then I think we're done."
"There's no space for the sentiment!" *groans*
"I'll just write it with a pen. " *disaster averted*
"Okay, I think it's done...or should I add something else?"
"Hmmm...crackle accents on the image?"
"Damn...it's not crackling and there are 2 air bubbles! It's going to look terrible!" *dramatic music plays in the background*
" Okay, I'll add some bling to distract from the failed crackling."

A few hours later, the crackles started to appear! *triumphant music plays in the background!*

I cut the paper to size, distressed the edges and adhered it to a light yellow card base. Another overdone card in my card pile! :)
