Redo of Love

I'm really enjoying the PTI Transformation Tuesday challenges.  This time I found a card in my stash I should never have posted. 
Original Card
The design in the hexagons doesn't show & I'm not happy with the watercoloring.  My new card also has an embossed geometric background (Cover Up: Diamonds), watercoloring, die cut Love & sentiment from Counting My Blessings. 
New Card
This time I smooshed the embossed panel with Distress Oxides Broken China, Worn Lipstick & Wilted Violet--drying between each color.  The word die cut was stacked 3 high & covered with Nuvo Crystal Glaze.  This time I stamped the sentiment in Vintage Cream & clear embossed on black.  The panel was matted with black & attached to a Vintage Cream card.  I like gray with pastels, but in this case the black is better to my eye.  The black dots are done with Pico Embellisher.  Now I have a card that will actually get mailed!  I'm also entering CAS(E) this Sketch, CropStop, SSS Wednesday & WAW.  Still way behind, but I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.

  1. Don't be too hard on yourself Greta, I think the soft sublet background on your first card looks wonderful, It's a lovely card. Your revised version is fabulous too. I've always liked that love die!

  2. What a fun smooshing technique and I love the way that embossed geometric pattern looks on your beautiful card! Thanks so much for linking up to Cropstop -- we're getting close to 100 links this month (which if we top it we'll get to give away TWO prizes!!).

  3. both cards are really pretty, but there's something about the second one that just is a more classy - i think it's the way you did the sentiment - amazing how one small thing can make such a big impact.

  7. They both look good to me Greta, the colour on the second is stronger and probably makes the sentiment pop a little more, but are lovely.

  17. Both are beauties, Greta! I like the hexagons on card one - so what if the design didn't show, looks great anyway! I like the pop of the black on card 2 with your smooshed and embossed background!!

  18. These are both pretty and very soft colors. I do like the cover die on the remake but I love both cards. That is a nice idea to do a transformation of an older card.
