Friendly Redo

kth_friends_sharingisgoodI made a card a month ago for a timed challenge….and I did not like it! I don’t do well with timed things – even as a kid I hated tests! Anyways, when I saw today’s Res-Q challenge I knew exactly which card to remake! First, here is a peek at the old card.

Now, on to my remake! I kept the same colors, but toned them down. I changed the size of the layers because the image seemed to get lost on the old card. Instead of completely coloring the image, I spotlighted instead because I wanted the focus to be on the girls whispering to each other. I also kept the sentiment treatment, but added a bit of accent.

The reason I added the accent, because I’m not sure I would have, was to cover up a boo-boo! When I die-cut the tag I guess I had a little too much thickness and all the pressure actually cut through the left edge instead of just making a little opening. I’m running low on white paper, so I wanted to salvage it. The tiny flower covers up the boo-boo and looks pretty too πŸ™‚

  1. Well, I liked the first card too! But I will agree that the image is much more prominent on the second card. Very pretty color scheme and the little flower on the sentiment is sweet.

  2. Love it Karen! The spotlight technique looks awesome with this image. Great job and thanks for playing the Trashy Tuesday challenge.

  3. I love happy accidents! I think that the flower detail on the tag is perfect! I love the spotlight. You took what was a lovely card.. and made it fabulous!
