The Pink Elephant Challenge #15

Hey Everyone!!

Did ya miss me on The Pink Elephant last week? I really hated not playing along, but for personal reasons, I sat it out. But, I am back this week! I wish I could say that I am back with some really great work, but alas, I missed the mark on this challenge! lol The challenge this week is to create something with a monogram. Normally, I would make a wedding themed item or stationary, but I wanted to try something different.....big mistake.

I created this card with good intentions.

But, I just wasn't happy with the colors. I printed off the sentiment and then stamped the B on a circle cut from Nesties. I will say that it looks better in person because the deeper tones on the embossed areas are actually glittery and so is the monogram piece. I brayered Versamark on the inside of the folder and then sprinkled glitter ep over the entire panel. But, I just wasn't overly happy with this.
So, I decided to try one more card....

UGH!! This one looked so much better in my head too!! I thought this could be such a cute card, but it just is not cute at all. I decided it was safest to surrender and not try another card.

Oh well...I hope you all play along over at TPE and come up with some fun monogram creations!! I can't wait to see them.

Thanks for stopping by....have a creatively wonderful day!

Tried to comment earlier Robin and blogger went wappy on me so fingers crossed that it will work this time. As usual your projects are just fabulous - I love the birthday green and black one especially - it's so dramatic.

These are great, Robin! I really love that glittery green. That embossing folder is STILL one that I don't own, but I ALWAYS look at when I see it. One of these days, I'll break down and buy it.

Have an awesome day!
