An accidental Yoda

This is a second card from the Paradise Crush pad designed by Louise Tiler. I have used the same template as last time too. Working with the different shape is really doing it for me at the moment.

Awesome Paradise Crush

I have stamped and die cut another of the Altenew Super Script words and then decided to cut a window in the front of the card as a bit of an extra feature. But it looked a smidgen unfinished so I decided to frame it with an asymmetrical shape. Not quite as easy as I thought, partly because I am allergic to asymmetry, and partly because you have to make the aperture in a surprisingly large piece of card and then cut it down to size at angles to achieve the shape you want. There is a lot of opportunity to get it wrong, as my first few attempts prove. I also tried the frame in black but it was a bit too severe and, figuring another pattern might just give me a migraine, white it is. I knew I wanted the ‘you are’ sentiment in their too, but the only place it looked right to me was where it is now, thus creating my accidental Yoda “Awesome, you are”. I will bluff it out and claim that as it is higher up, the ‘you are’ should be read first!

Part way through, watching the Wimbledon tennis final, I realised I should have used this sentiment with some tartan so I could dedicate it to Andy Murray. Probably missed that opportunity now as I am pretty sure glittery flowers are just not quite his thing. Ah well there’s always next year!

      1. He-he! I haven’t seen the movies either, but I read the books about 100 years ago. I think that might be Bilbo Baggins? Or Frodo, I am not sure.

    1. Has everyone been on the sherry trifle today? I like the term ‘artistic wonk’ but goodness, you’d have to be 100% confident of your enunciation, right?

  1. Gillian, your card is beautiful, your commentary is hilarious, and the comments confusing/autocorrecting the Yoda reference have me laughing aloud with tears streaming down my face. Lovely, it is! Forge ahead, “do or do not, there is no try!”
