I made these cards real quickly this morning for the CPS challenge. However, after seeing them in photos I am feeling uncertain about both cards. I feel like the image on the white is too crisp compared withthe rustic look of the kraft backgrounds. And then when I look at the image stamped on the kraft it is still not seeming quite right.
What do you think? Do you agree?
I am now of the opinion that the blue and the brown inks are just not working together even when I distressed them to blend them together. So any ideas of how to fix this?
Don't you hate flu season? Babies and men are the worst and I had a double whammy last night. We had a real rough night here. Leila and Bowen both had fevers, and were tossing their cookies sort of speak. So I am not feelin well rested nor quite right myself.

I hope whereever you are you are feeling much better then our house!

  1. Adorable card! I like the bird on white...makes it pop!!

  2. Very nice, great use of the CPS sketch. I like that colors you used on the bird.

  3. Very nice! I like the second one best. Hugs, Korin

  4. I really like it on the non-distressed, brighter white makes the stamp pop! Maybe you could do it on a cream colored cardstock that isn't distressed? Just a suggestion!
    Great job with sketch 105...thanks for playing at CPS this week!


  5. This is really beautiful!!! I like the blue and brown. Maybe you'd like it better on cream. It's light enough to still pop but would be les crisp than white? I think they are both lovely though ;)
