Not so great cards

Some cards that I think turn out well don't take a lot of time. These are cards I think did not turn out well but oh did they take time!

I am so disappointed in the way this card turned out. It does not look like I imagined it would and I did it twice! The first time as I was gold leafing around the edge of the oval I got gold ink in a place it couldn't be hidden on the background. Next when I did the embossing on the white panel I didn't get it even. So I scrapped the whole thing and started again.

This one I just plain do not like. It is 5" x 7", not a size I usually do but the 3d was too big for a smaller card and I just had to use the 3d after I spent so much time cutting it out!.

Sometimes things just do not turn out the way we want so I thought I would share my failures with you!

I also think they look lovely. The image in the first card is one of my favorites. I've made a couple of cards using that image too. You've done a wonderful job with it!

You don't like them? Well then just send em' to me...LOL.. Seriously they are beautiful but I do understand as an artist when you envision one thing and it turns out different you get dissapointed. Believe me when I say you DO have something to be proud of with these cards!!
