Do you make a card and know that while it’s pretty it’s a bit lifeless?  This was one of those that I shared in May on a post on Inlaying DSP.

Yellow Rose

Sure it was OK but look what I have done to it now!!

We have been working on our Techniques Pages and this month we featured the  Bokeh Technique and Ghosting.

So I was delighted when I purchased the very pretty Serene Scenery DSP pack and found some sheets with the technique already thereAltered rose 2.



I gently removed the Rose and Sentiment. Gave the leafs and sentiment a bit of colour with the Aqua pen and some Old Olive, mounted the DSP on to an Old Olive Card Base and replaced the elements.  Voila a new more vibrant  card.

See how effectively this Technique can be used! You can make your own backgrounds now and look as professional as this image, or just purchase the DSP.


Have fun.

    Gorgeous Naomi. Amazing how a couple of slight changes can make a card POP!

      Too true. I was very happy with the re-invention.
