Falling In Love #loveitchopit

Do you have a fear? Is that fear cutting into your beloved Designer Series Paper? My project today was inspired by an incident when I was leaving work

I have a extreme phobia of snakes, I can't even look at a picture without jumping out of my skin; so when I realised that there were live snakes outside the exit to work this afternoon I was beside myself - they were contained but I could still see them and they were moving, and I was terrified! A work colleague saw my distress (and lack of colour in my face) and blocked my view and talked to me so that I was distracted so that I could get past the snakes and to my car, I am so thankful.

Enough about that fear, onto happy thoughts.  I love DSP, but to cut into a piece - oh my what a challenge, and in another way a fear! What if I cut into the piece wrong, what if I don't utilise my cuts and waste this beautiful DSP - I could go on! But I did it, I opened the lovely "Falling in Love" DSP pack and cut into a sheet to create the floral background on my card - and it is so pretty!

I created the striped pattern by stamping in Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride using a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge, I really like the contrast to the floral pattern. The sentiment is from One Big Meaning - I sponged the both of these colours to create a slightly washed out effect as if ink was fading from a fountain pen.

  1. What a scary story!! I haven't got a phobia on snakes, but I do have a phobia of mice, and have been known to scream, (a real scream!) even at a dead one. I HATE THEM- and there's no way they could kill me! Lol so I think the fear is totally reasonable! Beautiful work, as usual Sue x

    1. I was beside myself Petra, it was a training session for some staff - glad I didnt know it was occurring! Thank you for your lovely comment about my card

  2. STUNNING Sue! Love this card. I too had a fear of snakes and overcame it by having one wrapped around me in the NT. Moved on from that fear now. :-)

    1. Thanks Kylie. You are braver than me, I don't think I could ever have one put on me!


Thanks for taking the time to write a comment - you have made my day!
