I Get to do a Re-do


Okay, after I looked at yesterday's card again today, I decided it wasn't very good at all! So I re-did it. Sorry to be repetitive but I think it's all worth it in the end. Hopefully, we'll all learn taking that second or third look might result in a much improved card design.

I still used the Soft Finish card stock but used it as a stamp panel on an A2 card base. The bear was stamped in the lower left of the card with the same colors. The bow was stamped with Teal Zeal the first go-around; then I used Bahama Breeze with the second layering stamp. The sentiment was stamped with the Gray Flannel; because I was using the MISTI stamp positioner, I stamped the sentiment twice to make sure it stood out. I also stamped the little clouds with hanging stars with the Gray Flannel as well. A silver glitter pen was used to fill in the stars. I used a gray colored Clean Color Real Brush Marker to quickly draw "grounding" sketch lines under the bear.
