Have you ever finished making a card, set it up on your desk to admire it, and found you hated it? Maybe it wasn't necessarily a bad card, but it didn't look like you made it. Or maybe it was pure bad ugly. Anyway, this is the card I made to recover from just such a failure, using the same large Hero Arts palm leaf stamp as on the epic failure, but with a totally different layout, color scheme, and technique.
First, I masked the center area with a piece of copy paper and temporary adhesive and positioned it in the center with the help of my quilting ruler. Then, I stamped the palm leaves in Impress Ink grass. After removing the mask, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Luxe espresso truffle. Finally, using a metal ruler, I drew the silver lines with a metallic ink marker by Prismacolor.
Not a bad recovery, eh?
And a perfect card for us all in these very troubled times.
