Remake

Hellowishyouwerehere

Do you ever look at a card and think….hmmm…that could be improved?  I liked my card from yesterday.  I love my card today.

After putting down two strips of the washi tape,  I used my “hello” die, but this time, used a lightweight cardboard and cut it out three times.  The layers were glued together to give some depth to the piece.  Another change I made was to deepen the colours of the three die cut pieces…the florals and leaves.  I also added some white gel pen to the large flower.

The background was again debossed with the same plate.  The only other thing I changed was to add a “label” strip with “wish you were here”.  I like the contrast!

The other change was I finally got some photo editing software on my new iMac which makes me much happier with my photos.

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

One thought on “Remake”

  1. I have done that several times. In fact, today I “fixed” a card made a few days ago after seeing the photo of it and realizing I wasn’t happy with it. Sometimes it helps to see the photo. 🙂

    This card is really beautiful. I agree with the changes you have made that makes your hello pop more from the dimension, and adding the deeper colours to the leaf and flowers. The black sentiment banner adds a lot of contrast, which makes all the other colours pop. 🙂 Beautiful design, my friend! xx
