These cards represent the project that is now occupying my craft table. I still have several to go before these glittery, messy, mock-ups called cards are out of my system! Wish me luck and hopefully I'll see you again in a few days with part 2 of this "hair-raising" dilemma known as card making! As usual, Thanks for stopping by and Thanks for all of your support!
Notice how the flourish looks washed out and the
gem stone looks very dark? Not the true look of this card.
The alphabets and the decorative paper photographed
darker than they should have, and yet the gemstone and the
The paper in this case is kind of faded looking and the
alphabets aren't as brilliant as they really are. The flourish
is faded looking and the gemstone is too dark.
This glitter is actually a very bright and brilliant gold, contrary
to the way it looks here. I didn't think the flourish
would look right with the balloons, so I decided to use
some bright gold sticker letters I have and they
came out looking dark!
I'm probably happiest with the way this one photographed,
although the alphabets are a bit darker then they
actually are. I think the paper is a tad darker, but not
too much. The flourish is fine and the pearl is fine.
On this one, you can barely see the rhinestone in the
flourish. The flourish itself is kind of lost and you can barely
tell that the alphabets are covered in black glitter! Not at all the way
this card looks up close
Trial and error...experience is the best teacher!
