I’ve never managed to play along with Mojo Monday’s Tall & Skinny Challenge – until now. I’ve combined their sketch challenge with the colour challenge at MFT Challenge. Here’s their inspiration pics:
First I’m going to have a debrief.
I’ll be the first to say I don’t take criticism in life very well and have never had to with my card making. I had, what I would consider, a negative comment left for me on Sunday and I actually felt a bit put out about it all day. The comment was about how all of my cards look the same and how I repeat the worn and torn edges in all of my cards. Worn and torn edges are repeated by a lot of card makers who create in the same style as myself. I’m not an expert on styles but I consider this to be along the lines of shabby chic/vintage. I also think I try and add different details to each card so they don’t look the same. One of the designs teams I’m on requires a clean card and I think I achieve this style too (the DT must think so as I’m still on their DT after 14 months!). I think I can be versatile when required and if you take a look back at my blog you will see I try to mix it up between styles. Anyway, do I not have the right to make MY cards how I want? I’ve been struggling to create probably from last year when I fractured my elbow. This changed about a week ago and I was actually wanting to go out to my craft room again. Then I got this anonymous comment. >:-( If you don’t like my cards, and feel I repeat the worn and torn look, then don’t follow my blog. Simple.
Sorry for the long whinge, but it was better than my first reply that consisted of 2 words – it started with an F and ended with a U!
I really do appreciate and love all the positive comments I get – so I guess this one just threw me.
Now on to my card, which you will see, is a clean card with no “worn and torn edges”.
Thanks for stopping by. Sorry mum for almost swearing!;)
