Amber is celebrating her 1 year of blogging by taking old, what-was-I-thinking cards (even though her worst ones aren't bad at all...) and re-making them. I'm joining her do-over blog hop. Lawd knows I have plenty of cards to choose from...
This is one of the cards that I look back on and then quickly have to look away from:
Yikes! I wish I could say it looks better in real life, but the splotches of color are really harsh and I haven't been able to send this one out to anyone. It's still sitting in my craft room, so unloved... (time to gift it to my parents! ha.)
You all know I love me some color, but what's on the original card had me running back to white:
Ahhhh.... much better. I used the same stamp set, but I simplified the number of flowers on my card, and took away almost all of the color...except for some light splotching of pink in the middle of each bloom, an ode to the old, cringe-worthy card.
I also outlined the flowers with a light-beige copic marker.
Thank you for reading my blog, even though I post some uglies sometimes. And thanks, Amber, for giving us space to do it over :)
