Take Two

I had so much fun with this week's ScrapTiffany challenge. We were challenged to redo an old project, so I dug up this beauty from 2003. It honestly is one of my first 5 cards I've ever made.

VersaMark ink was my current obsession. I don't think patterned paper existed, at least I didn't know about it. I did not own any ribbon, so this crepe paper thing came from a wreath I made for my first house. Oh, and Crystal Effects was the hottest product out. I used it to give the little leaves a glossy dimension. And what do you think of my distressing? The torn paper look was my "go-to" technique. Oh, the memories!!

So, on to my re-do:

I just love the invention of gorgeous patterned paper..... and fancy ribbon..... and distressing tools.... and distress inks... and distress stickles!!!!! I love this hobby!! I did use one old school product: CHALK! I chalked in the leaves because markers would have been too bold. I like the result and will probably use my chalks again soon.

You've got to try this challenge. It was such a blast. And don't forget about the DT Call or ScrapTiffany.


  1. I love seeing the evolution of the idea and the card! That is a fun challenge! Did you see my giveaway for May? Was thinking of my two super cricut friends, you and Britten!

  2. Wow, quite an evolution, but they are both really impressive! I adore the touch of twine and lace in the second, as well as the patterned paper.

  3. this is fabulous, what a great idea to go back to an old card and redo it.....have a wonderful weekend!
