I love hearing people describe their creative process to create cards. In the beginning I scoured countless blogs admiring beautiful cards and hoping fabulous ideas would leap off the computer screen into my head.....that was the Wishful Thinking Method of Stamping. Next I became a late night stamper and was convinced that the best ideas happened after midnight......the Hail Mary Method. Then I subscribed to a zillion stamping magazines and tried as many different trends and styles as I could.......known as the Throw It Out There and See What Sticks Method. These days I prefer to craft in the morning so I am now using the Sleep On It Method. I scope the challenge the night before and plan what I am going to do as I fall asleep. So for this card I decided I would use an ombre technique to stamp chicken wire in three sections. Then I would put a crazy looking chick with blue hair in front with a sentiment. And somehow this card became all about red cups and coffee........I think I need a new method.....
I love Karren's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week and look forward to seeing what you do with it.....and I'd love to know what you were thinking to get you there!
