Couture or Ready To Wear?

Saturday, July 18, 2015

It's another rainy day here today so I thought I'd take advantage of it and play along with the MFT Sketch Challenge.  I just finished saying how I never use patterned paper and here I am using some!  I did give away most of my paper stash, but I held on to a few pieces that I loved.  I decided this little bunny needed a paper pieced dress.
As I mentioned yesterday, I love adding dimension to my cards.  If I run low on foam dots I start to get nervous.  I pick up 5 packs at a time from my local craft store.  As much as I love creating dimension I curse it when it's time to mail the cards. 
Instead of telling myself I can't or shouldn't create cards like this, I have decided to also create a simpler, less dimensional version while all of my supplies are out.  Generally, I don't enjoy mass producing because I get bored creating the same thing more than once.  I don't feel that way when I do this.  I am still challenging myself to come up with something new even though I'm using the same supplies.

I love both versions! Which do you lean more towards: the dimensional 'couture' cards or the simple 'ready-to-wear' cards?
 Have a great Saturday!
