Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #76

Sometimes, I have an idea for a card in my mind that doesn't go as planned. When I saw the sketch this week at Atlantic Hearts, I had a great idea.

However, due to less-than-perfect masking, ink smudges and a fussy cutting nightmare, I ended up with something very different from my original idea.

I am still on the fence about this card, but by this stage I was over it! I am sure it will still make any robot loving boy happy, but I am just a bit deflated as it was not what I was expecting.

How do you recover from crafting let-downs? I would love to know your thoughts! While you are here, it would be lovely to see your take on the sketch this week.

CTMH supplies used:
Cardstock: Canary, White Daisy
Embellishments: Durables Triangle Studs
Markers: B62 Marine Blue, GY Sap GreenR140 Light Orange, WG Warm Grey
Inks: New England IvyPacificaSlate
Paper: Whimsy Fundamentals Assortment
Stamp set: Robot Family


  1. I think this card is really cute. When I get a card completed and it is not what I expected, and I am not happy with it, I give it to my daughter and I start over. She is just starting to craft and loves to have some designs to inspire her.

  2. This is so cute. I love the embellies you used on it. I agree, any robot loving boy would adore this.

  3. awesome job on your card. alot of detail.
