Reject #1 and Your Invited!

Hey y'all!! Thought I would share a rejected card with you all. I have to admit, this is one of my favorite cards I have made to date, but it got the old rejecto! Sooo, thought I'd share with you here then! :D I had a total of 6, SIX!! rejected, stung just a bit, but, tis ok, it's not gonna take away my love of this little hobby! We all have different tastes, and mine just wasnt what they editors where looking for THIS time! :D Here it is, using the bleaching technique:



I used Gina K Designs' Honey Mustard cardstock and I LOVE how it bleached out! Isnt that a gorgeous Daisy!?? I did use a marker on the leaves after bleaching, and added some pen work with a white gel pen and copic marker. But yea, this is one of my favs!! You likey? :D

And tonight is the night!! The Gina K Design February Release! Here is Gina's Invite video:

You're Invited!!

Hope to see you there! Lots of good convo with wonderful friends! AND gorgeous samples from all of the DT to oogle at! :D Our hops will start Monday, March 4th, so be sure and come back here then!

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my work with you!!

great technique Cat! I am always so afraid of stamping with bleach!

I liked your card, and the technique. Maybe it's not what they think is "trendy", but, it's their loss. So, just have a nice cool beverage, and think happy thoughts. There is always another day, another magazine. Gazillions out there. So no big deal, right?

Hi Cat, Your card is beautiful and I can't imagine anyone rejecting it. I for one would love to see it in a magazine. One thing I must tell you is that I think your flower is a Sunflower, not a daisy. :)) Hugs Lori

Oh, Cat - you tried and that's a sign of success for sure! My middle name is 'reject!' But I keep trying too. I love your card - it reminds me of fall. Hang in there, will make your first publication one of surreal joy!
