I am so appreciative of all of your comments an suggestions from yesterday’s post. Because i don’t have the stamp set, i couldn’t start from scratch. Because tour suggestions were so varied, i couldn’t incorporate them all into my rework of that card.
Some of the best suggestions, in my opinion, related to the sentiment itself. It never occurred to me to READ the DSP background. You’re all right! A history lesson on berries and plants – probably not the best background for a sympathy card. Sentiment changed! I also loved the ideas of putting brads or pearls along the Very Vanilla panel. It was also suggested that I lightly sponge on the Very Vanilla panel. My sponging technique was a little darker than I had hoped, but I quite like the way it turned out. By the way, I also sponge daubered a little Baja Breeze over the rhinestones before adding them on. Wiped most off, but there is still a nice essence of blue left on them.
Is this card any better, or did I mess it up further?
Disclaimer: in every photo I took of this card, the ribbon in the top corner looks bunched up. I don’t know why it photographs that way! Just so you know, it looks smooth and clean in person. I you want to come over and see for yourself, I will show you. 🙂
