Have you ever had a card that you just have to keep coming back to and tweaking? Yeah. That would be me today. . . . and because I forgot that my generic dollar store migraine relief tabs have caffeine in them, yeah, I'm also still wide awake at 2:09 a.m.
Anyway, this card has been giving me fits. Not sure if that means I'm becoming more creative - because this is NOT CASEd, but my own card sketch & design :) - or I'm just crazy??? (Don't answer that - it was a rhetorical question!!).
First, I did this:
Then I decided it needed some color on the stamped image. So I experimented with my Watercolor Wonder crayons (which I definitely haven't mastered yet):
Still wasn't quite happy. So (since I couldn't sleep anyway), I experimented with softening the coloring a bit with a pencil eraser, and added a little "antiquing" to the ribbon & card edges with my Sponge Daubers & Soft Suede inkpad:
There you have it - from AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHH!!! to AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!
Maybe NOW I can sleep. Happy stampin'!
