Today's card comparison has to do with placement. I made the following version of the card first.
Something bothered me about it. The pinecone seemed just a titch too close to the W of Wonderland. It felt crowded and cramped. Just a bit.
But it niggled at me.
So I stamped the same card again, giving just a little more space between image and sentiment.
Odd thing is, now I like them both. The first one no longer feels cramped to me, and the second one also seems fine.
How totally weird is that?
It was hard to get a picture that showed off the shimmer of this card. I filled in the blank areas of the pinecone with Sakura Stardust Clear pen, and highlighted the green needles with it as well. The effect is absolutely lovely in real life.
So what do you think? Does the difference in placement make any difference to you? Do you prefer the first or second card?
Inquiring minds want to know.
stamps: Papertrey Peaceful Pinecones, unknown sentiment
