MCT "Do Over" Thursday


It's "Do Over" Thursday with My Creative Time, a day when we choose a card that we made in the past, one that we maybe aren't happy with or would like to switch up the theme, and we remake it!  I chose my card below.  I like the design of it, but I was never really happy with how my background turned out.  I used a watercolor over the woodgrain background stamp, and I just don't think the color works well with the rest of the colors in the card.

For my new card, I kept a white background.  I took a strip of white paper and stamped the Geo Borders on it with some Hero Arts inks and then adhered that to a strip of black cardstock before adhering it to my white card base.  I die cut my Stitched Restroom Peeps out of blue and green patterned paper this time, and then used the same blue and green Hero Arts Inks that I used on my border to ink up the speech bubbles, made with Stitched Square Speech Bubbles and Fun Speech Bubbles.  The "square" one was stamped with a sentiment from Celebrate Good Times and the "Yay!" stamp is included in Fun Speech Bubbles.  Lastly, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins.


Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see some more "Do-Over" projects!

Even though the wood background looks good it does seem to overpower the peeps so they don't show up much. Your new card is an improvement and I like the way you kept it the same design with different colors. I like the colors you chose. Beautiful job on your make-over!
