Moving Along With The Times are having a wonderful 'Flashback' Challenge, where you re-post (no back-linking) an old card or project that you are proud of or one that means something special to you. Sounds lots of fun to me!
I thought I would go way back to the beginning and choose a card that most people won't have seen. So this is from when I first started Blogging and Stamping. It was my 3rd Blog Post, and my 2nd attempt at a Challenge on October 2010.
What amazes me is that I did an Easel Card!!! I really was 'winging it' and learning on the job here. I had a handful of Promarkers and only three stamps!!! I had bought Lili of The Valley's 'Dropping theShopping', 'Skating Along' and 'Christmas Candle'
I was so naive that after buying these three rubber stamps in August, I bought a huge ink pad and thought that was it!! I took the unmounted rubber stamp and plunged it headlong into the ink pad and wondered why all I got was a dreadful mess !!!!!!! rofl ….. oh dear, memories!
Anyway, after a lot of googling and looking at other peoples websites, I figured out what I needed. There was this strange Crafting Language that I didn't understand. What on earth was DCWV and WOC and Blog Hops?? LOL Sandy's Stamping Scene was the first Cardmaking Site that I ever came across and I was really blown away by her cards. They weren't just Greeting Cards, they were Works of Art!!! and it was where I first saw the Challenges!
I can't believe how my colouring has changed in a year! This looks very basic, no shading.
Anyway, hope you have enjoyed this blast from the past! Some of my commenters for this card were Pat, Brenda, Clare, Andrea, Pinky, Tracy. I didn't really know you all back then but you, and my Followers to come, were all so supportive as I was starting out. So thanks for that! and hope you enjoyed a little trip down memory lane!
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenge:
