Card makeover 1Posted: March 17, 2011
I mentioned in the last couple of posts that I had cast several cards aside because they didn’t work for some reason. They did not, however end up in the garbage, I photographed them and put them in the makeover pile as there was something in them worth saving.
The card above is the made over card. The card below is the rejected one. It was the reject that I was happiest with, the one that almost made the cut as it was, but it had a few issues. One was the badly stamped sentiment and the other was the edge of the sponging. I wish I had softly diminished the sponging instead of using a mask to create a line.
In the makeover I just used the leaf panel, sliced into three and popped up. Slicing is a very helpful technique to apply when making over a card. I was going to use a white card base but, inspired by Susan Raihala’s commitment to use up more of her coloured cardstock, I reached for a coloured card instead. I definitely do have plenty of coloured cardstock lounging around.
That is the first of the makeovers, the others will be harder to do as the rejects were not as pretty as this one!
