After completing the card below, something just wasn't right, and then it hit me. The sentiment was green. That was the problem! If the sentiment were stamped in red there would be more cohesiveness. More flow. I needed to re-create my card using red for the sentiment.
Here is the same card with just one minor change, the sentiment color. Much better! Along with the sentiment color change, I used a golden color bling. These blend better than the clear, and are a bit more subtle in my opinion. What do you think?
Because this is a one-layer card, I used my Tombow markers to avoid the bleed through that you have with Copics. It's been ages since I've had my markers out. To add interest to the petals, I used Stickles (Diamond) . I love the shimmer and sparkle that it adds!
Here is a up close photo. With the Tombow Blender Pen, I was "trying" to do some shading on the leaves.
I hope I've given you inspiration and motivation to get started on your Christmas thank you notes.
