Hey there! Happy Tuesday friends! Today I'm sharing a project I created for Papertrey Ink's Transformation Tuesday challenge! The idea is to take one of your own projects that either didn't turn out the way you envisioned or one that you would like to change up a little (either make a feminine card masculine or vise versa).
The card that immediately came to mind for today's challenge was one that I created for this past November's release.
Even though my original card was created during the Fall (so it made sense to use Autumn inspired colors) I was never quite happy with how it turned out. I absolutely loves these flowers from the Flower Power stamp set and thought they should be the first thing you see. With my old card, the background and frame was so busy that it competed too much with the flowers.
I kept the overall design pretty much the same. Instead of dark colors, though, I used a soft neutral color. I started with a piece of Bitty Big: Soft Stone patterned paper and then layered on a frame I made by die cutting a couple of the Noted: Pinked Edge 2 dies from Soft Stone cardstock.
Here is my original card. You can see how the darker patterned paper and frame compete with flowers. The flowers are just too pretty to share the spotlight! :-) Click HERE to see the original post.
You can find more details about the challenge over at the Papertrey Ink blog. I hope you get a chance to play along!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
