Maybe not!


I was trying to put the "finishing touches" on this card before I glued everything down when I realized that it just was not going to work. The dark blue was not right. I had sensed it in the back of my mind earlier, but I liked how it looked and did not want to change it! Did you get the same idea I did when looking at it? My family agreed with me that with the dark blue surrounding it, the card looks rather rather funereal. It's one thing to make a sympathy card, but in this context, the image is a bit too intense; the "dearest" sounds like an agonizing cry from the heart. What do you think? I'm going to try to re-make it today...

I agree that you need to either go black, white, distressed and kind of retro OR pastel and baby like.
Love your blog!!

Yeah, I'd have to agree that the blue is overly somber. I really like the torn paper layers, though!

I had to think on this for a few days, and was imaging what an antique taupe or soft neutral background would do. I guess that's basically what you and everyone else said, so in essence, the light bulb clicked on for me. :D

Love this card and the collage look of it and several of your previous designs. They are all beautiful. I need to experiment more with collage. I love the feel of it, but just don't remember to play with it. TFS all your art work.
