I love games. Card games, board games. Kid's games or party games. My husband's sister said she never knew the real me until we played the friendly family card game. I guess the word I am looking for, is competitive. Yep, that would be me!
So when the kind folks at Papertrey Ink give us an opportunity to win our $300 wish list of their stamps and wonderful products, I say, count me in!
For this contest (you can read about it HERE), we are to pick a card we weren't totally pleased with, and using tips from the fabulous projects they posted today, we are to remake our card.
Here's my transformed card for the contest. A random drawing, btw, so everyone can have a chance to win just by trying. Don't you love that? Don't you hope I win? (giggle)
I made a little list of the tips I gleaned from the designers. Michelle used black paper behind a dotted die to add a great accent to her focal point. I added a black circle behind the die to add interest to the focal point, and used a twine bow to adorn it at the top. That was another tip. Lastly, I die cut the group of flowers in the cluster, and then die cut the two largest flowers to layer on top for dimension.
Here's the card I originally made. It always bothered me that the sentiments were a bit out of balance, although I did it intentionally to take part in a sketch challenge.
I think the extra details really do add something special to the makeover card. I also added pearls and the sparkle of Wink of Stella on the sentiment die cut. The stamps and die cuts used are from the Don't Forget to Write Kit from Papertrey Ink.
I love learning from other designers and trying to improve at this craft is always a fun challenge. Thanks to you for visiting today. I hope you've been inspired.
I'd love to hear from you!
Find delight in your craft.
