Well, I really am enjoying myself. Really.
A few days ago, I was working in Section 2, Stamp-a-ma-jig. Going good. Going good. Until I got to Project 4, which was called "A Fun Technique Made Possible by the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
Well, I must admit that it took me a long time to embrace the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Years. But I now find it a truly indispensable tool that I don't quite know how I had lived without it for so long. It makes perfect placement in stamping a cinch.
In fact, awhile back I picked up a roll of clear plastic on Clearance, and I just cut off the right-sized piece for whatever stamp I'm needing to line up, stamp the image with the Stamp-a-ma-jig in Black StazOn, and then just keep the little stamped plastic piece with the stamp set for the next time. Works so slick!
Well, back to my dilemma and Project 4. Other than the Crumb Cake card stock and the Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad the project called for, I had no supplies on the list to recreate the card. So, as in all except the first one of the projects I've completed so far, I decided to use what I had and make it my own, while still focusing on the technique being presented.
I don't think I ever slaved so fruitlessly over a card as I did on this one. I can blame it on my lack of supplies and thus my different approach, but I just don't know if there is even any hope left for this poor thing. I think it's beyond help.
After "finishing" it that night, I stared at it for two days, feeling completely dismayed every time it came into view. Finally, yesterday, I thought I knew how to salvage the helpless little critter. So I headed back downstairs.
While the "improvements" help a LITTLE bit . . .
. . . even my husband admits it's not my best work. And he's being kind. Here is a close-up of the little wonder:
My question for you is: Do you think this poor thing can be saved? If so, what are your suggestions?
