I have been a busy girl today.
I entered a blog contest (see below blog post) for the very first time. I have never entered anything with my artwork so this was a huge step for me. After posting the card to the Color Dare site I started thinking of ways to improve the card that I entered.
Do I think I will win the challenge with the original card?
Probably not since I do not consider it my best work but I knew that if I did not hit send right then - that I would never enter.... I would chicken out.
I decided to do "Take 2" of the same card design but make it the normal card size that I use. So I scaled down the design from 8x3 to 5 1/2 x 4. Then for some reason I thought that for the challenge I had to use stamp pad ink so I did. For the Take 2 card I punched the circles and adhered them onto the card.
Here are both cards:
Card 1 that I entered
I think that Take 2 is a much better card. In fact I was texting with Dorothy about this and mentioned that for now on I will make card 1 and enter card 2 into the Color Dare Challenge.
How does it feel stepping out of my box?
To be honest....
