Leaf Canopy Collage #1

Sometimes cards don't go the way you had planned ... they seem to have a life of their own.

I started with wanting a CAS card with the leaf canopy.  I played with the idea of having a pink strip, and the confetti below, but I got stuck! Asked myself all sorts of questions :

  • Need to bring in the pink somewhere else. With what? Where?
  • Where do I put the sentiment?
  • Is it enough? Or too bare?

Do you ever second guess yourself too?

So then I splattered the background - having covered the leaves with their die cuts to protect them. But I didn't like it.  So I die cut them out.

Played around with other die cuts and stamps ... and instead of having 2 leaf canopy stamps, I only used one.  

Come back tomorrow for the second card.

  1. I loved your first idea... but that's just me, lol. They're both beautiful. I love that stamp and yes, I have it, but haven't yet really used it. I may just do that now. Love the way you coloured it, too :-)
