Reject week! Day one

I thought I would use this week well by sharing a new (to you!) reject card each day. These are cards that I submitted to Paper Crafts magazine. Some I knew wouldn't get in but I submitted anyways, and some I actually thought I had a chance at... those ones hurt the ego the most.

Reject number one: An anniversary/Valentine/Love you card.  The concept was to use paint on your card, so I stamped using acrylic paints :)

 I loved this card. I loved the imperfections, the flaws of the paint, and the bold colors. My husband ended up giving me this card for Valentine's Day this year, so I guess he really liked it too :)

Stamps: Paper Smooches "Word Salad" and Craft's Meow "Vintage Ornaments"
Paint: Americana acrylic paint in red and navy

And tomorrow there will be another reject to lay your eyes on (more stamping with paint comin up!)

  1. Very cute and creative. Love the design and the colors!

    I've only had one accepted last Feb for PC and I've submitted to every call since then - so don't feel bad. It's not easy to get accepted - they have so many submissions! But, I did find out last week one of my summer card rejects got picked up for the August Cricut Magazine! Don't forget to submit other places too - especially if you make one you really like.

  2. Love the colors! I know what you mean about "imperfection" for the paint design as I have a couple of those! I also submitted on that one and didn't get any picked! Keep playing!
