While I ponder whether that is really a good or bad thing, let's forge ahead!
Anyway, I made this--
This is done with Papertrey Ink's Up Up and Away stamps and dies, and A*Muse Studio's Cloud Duo dies. I used the cloud stamps to make what should be treetops there on the bottom. Really, not a bad card, but just nothing really special about it. Yawn, even.
So, I got out some patterned papers, and the cloud dies and got to work making this more interesting.
Now, my grand scheme is to be able to make stuff better without having to rip stuff apart. Time will tell, as I go on, whether or not this will be possible. Stay tuned.
Anyway, here's what I came up with-
There's just more "There" there. Why?
The patterned clouds give you a more eye-catching visual, not to mention that more clouds are just "more" to look at.
The "treetops", whether your eye sees them as trees or just ground or bushes or whatever, have a stronger presence, and makes the whole "airborne" feeling of the balloons even stronger. I love that I got so much "landscaping" done from only two die cuts! (and the award for most quote marks in a single post goes to.....!)
No really huge changes here, and that, is my point. Often, it doesn't take a huge amount of changes to improve your work. Sometimes, it just wants a little "flair"! (Yes, I used them again. Keep on reading, I may do it yet again!)
So, dig out some of those cards you aren't sending because you just don't love them, and get your flair on.
More to come!
Thanks so much for dropping by!
