Things I like about the card - definitely bleaching the foamy beer, the hanging tag, the tone-on-tone layering. But the total amount of the olive color seemed just too much. I also debated about the 'party hearty' sentiment. Wasn't sure I liked it. So I was off and running on the remake before the bleach could dry out in my painter
This is my final take on the card. A few changes were made and the look seemed much more eye-catching to me. Hope you like it too.
Here are the major changes - ribbon color and type (major difference - more manly!), Ticket Corner Punch corners added, changed the hemp twine to a natural color, and lastly I left off the sentiment. Instead I might add either a Father's Day or birthday sentiment.
Well, there you have the two versions, similar but quite different in the total look. One of the quirky things about making this card was the additional beer mug. Seems like I had to make about 4 of them before the bleached out color was the same. Different dye lots of cardstock really do give a different finished look - everything from a golden yellow, to cream, to purplish white. Crazy!! But it was fun to do, and now I've got a few more beer mugs all set to put on another card! Maybe I'll stamp the background on Vanilla and watercolor the beer mugs with Old Olive the next time. We'll see how that would work out!!
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you're in the mood to party with your stamps!!
