May I take you on a recap of my creative process? Major pressure with the heart challenge idea over at CASual Fridays. Something so easy and near to my heart (ha ha ha) but how to make it new and different? Along comes the second sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. And much to my amazement, I was a FAVE in their first challenge, so THE PRESSURE IS ON TO PERFORM. Know what I mean?!?
Add a rough night's sleep to the matter and I wake up with, IMHO, a great idea this morning. Actually pulled this one off is less than 10 minutes. (Maybe I will try the 10-Minute-Dash challenge one of these days...) A heart stamp and some fave Distress Inks. Easy, once you have a plan.
But alas, the CASual Fridays heart challenge has ended.
Then to my amazement I see that the new CASual Fridays (who, by the way are now making stamps!!!) challenge is titled "Over the Edge". Which is basically what the CAS(E) Sketch #2 is too. How lucky am I?
Not. Enter the "creative liberty" part. Cuz, you see, my artistic soul would not allow me to "chop off" part of my gorgeous (IMHO) stamped creation once I had stamped it. Tried both variations (mentally) but just couldn't do it. What do you think? Is the goal to follow the challenge 100% or to make a card which makes your heart smile?
I'm smiling. Hope you are too.
