Hi, last week I posted a card using the Painted Harvest stamp set and I mentioned the end result didn’t quite match what was in my head. I decided to give it another go. The basic card design is the same however I have changed the orientation and darkened the colours.
TIP: You can use your sponge daubers or sponges to change the colour of the linen thread. For my card, I thought the linen thread was too pale. I used Chocolate Chip ink to add some more colour. It also ties the thread into the inking around the Designer Series Paper and the Chocolate Chip card base.
Here’s the card…
I also added the sentiment in a different way, making it more a part of the flower cluster rather than being off to the side. (Don’t you just love that cute little tag from the Wood Crate Framelits die set?!)
Here’s the original card…(with a new background)
A kind reader suggested I try re-taking the photograph of the earlier card with a different background. I do think it helps showcase the card in a much better way! (Thank you, Jo-Ann!)
Never give up on an idea. Sometimes it doesn’t work the first time. Artists practice and practice their craft but somehow we crafters think that every card of ours has to be perfect first time, every time. It’s okay to try something, change a few things and try again. It is how we grow and learn. Plus it is always heaps of fun to craft!
Don’t forget to take the opportunity to score some bargains, and stock up on some essentials, during the World Card Making Day and Designer Series Paper Sale!
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount or wood mount), I link to them both.
