Before I dig into this weekend's OWH VCMP, I wanted to submit a card for the August Bootcamp lesson - Relationship advice. Paula's homework was to re-do a card from the past and apply the techniques we've learned.
I'm not afraid to take an epic-fail card and re-do it! Here's a one-layer card I made using with a floral stamp set. I thought that the flowers were supposed to be stamped together, which I tried along the bottom and side of the card:
I colored them with Inktense pencils and then watercolored them. Every time I looked at the card, it just seemed off to me.
After reading the lesson, I realized that I didn't group the flowers together and the sentiment seemed to just float by itself. For the lesson, I dragged out the stamps again and tried to group them together - it just wasn't working.
I was forcing the flowers to have a relationship, so I chose one flower and a sentiment and stamped them together. Here's my re-do of the card:
I took inspiration from the latest Muse challenge - #32 - to make the flower and sentiment "relate" to each other. I used the Muse card sketch for my version:
I enjoyed the chance to fix a card and Paula's lessons have helped me along the way.
Now, on to the VCMP!
