I had to redo this card.


One main reason, I can't seem to grasp the power of red.


After carefully stamping the flowers, I initially inked the dots in red.


Know what it looked like?


Yup.


Blood splatters.


No matter how pretty- looks like a crime scene.


I almost always do this when trying to incorporate red.


Good thing there aren't any creatures appearing on this card or it would have looked even worse.


Can't go wrong with chocolate splatters, though~yes please!



Have a good one~

  2. Love your card Marlena! The color combo is perfect for Valentines and one that I love. I had to laugh about your crime scene with the red ink. lol I can see why you think that, but I bet we wouldn't have felt that way. Hugs, Brenda
