Masking Swap

I feel like I can post this one now, as I sent my swaps out yesterday.

I made this card for a Masking Swap I joined. The star, from the Love It hostess set was stamped first, in Pumpkin Pie, then masked and over stamped with the circles stamp (in Tempting Turquoise) from the Background Sampler set. This was then masked and over stamped with the Print Pattern background stamp, in Close to Cocoa. All of this is done on Naturals Ivory cardstock. The star is coated with Crystal Effects. The Hello! is stamped in Chocolate Chip.

I was feeling all pleased with myself, and had made up about 8 of the eleven I needed, when I asked my hubby what he thought. He looked at it for a while then said, 'ummmm the colours are a bit bright...or something'. Arrrggggghhhhhhhh. Note to self....don't ask hubby what he thinks if you don't really want to know :-(. I hope the swapees don't think it's yukky. No-one will ever join a swap with me again (the beauty of this online gig is that I can always blame my dodgy looking cards on the poor photography ;-). I should take them outside during the day because I always struggle with my flash at night.

The colours look great - what does he know ;o) You're right - never ask them for those kind of opinions! I need to get working on my masking swaps - but I'm in a different group so it isn't spoilt for me.
