Second Chances

Hi Lovelies,

This is my second blog post for today.  Please scroll down or go here to see it :o).

I really hated this card.  I had a wonderful idea in my head but it didn't translate well to paper.  So when I saw this challenge over at A Blog Named Hero, I knew exactly which card I wanted to re-do.  I love this flourish stamp, to me it is very elegant.  So I wanted to do it justice.

I think this is at least 100 times better ;o).  I decided to keep it simple.  So I  stamped the flourish with VersaMark ink & then added Hot set powder & heat set it before adding Golden Sunset Glitter & hitting it with the heat gun again.  I then added some Kaisercraft Gems in a similar colour.  I also added the sentiment (& got it straight!) with the last 2 gems.  I used some pp from Just Believe 6 x 6 pad by Kaisercraft.  I mounted it onto black c/s before adding it to a white card base.  I will also be adding this to the latest Hero Arts challenge as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Paula! I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only one making cards and then re-making them if I'm not happy with the first draft! I af=gree, I really love the second card...perfection!

Great retake Paula, although I did like the first one. Love the glittery goodness of your second card.

Great retake on the original card! I also re did one of mine too from the 24hr scramble weekend!
