Topic: Pretty Paper
Even with a very bright yellow as the card base, borders and a sentiment strip this card was comming off pretty bland. Then I pulled out a 'mistake' piece where a diecut did not go all the way through the cardstock and decided to make it the focal piece.
It was not defined well so I used 'black soot' Distress Ink to crate some depth and emphasize the lines.
I used the same bordering technique as yesterday for the lower portion of the leafy piece. This sets it off from the dark blue background and unifies the materials.
