Still Trying....

Well, I'm still trying to get my stamping groove back. At first, I thought this card was pretty good, now I'm not so sure. Isn't it amazing how what you make always looks different than what you envisioned? and also how much different it looks on the computer? This is for yesterday's SCS sketch challenge.
I used Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Sage and Black for my color palette. I know some of those are old colors; but as I said yesterday I haven't updated my paper yet so I just have to work with what I got. The stamp is an old one too from SU's "Fruit Stand" set. I stamped it in Memento Black ink and then used Copics to color it in. I realized after I colored it in that the greens I used really didn't match the paper. My Copic collection is more than it used to be; but still quite small, so again I used what I had.
So, not my favorite; but it'll do for today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great afternoon!

Hi! found you through the SCS thread.

I admit I'm not fond of the lighter green color, but I do like the card. You've got lots of nice layers and embelishments in there.

I'm still new to the card making part of this craft so I love seeing all the great "sketches" and "challenges" everyone is doing!!

Following!!

I think it looks just fine, figure under the circumstances with moving, unpacking and figuring out your town,oh and 3 kids, I give you credit for finding time stamp at all. It is a very pretty card.
