I said I would try again, and I did...Here's my latest attempt at the hidden word technique. I saw so many great examples on Darnell's blog and on the internet that really inspired me to give it another go. This time I'm really pleased.
One thing that I would have done differently if I dared would have been to add some splatter. I was really afraid that if I tried, I would mess up the image. As it was, this is my second rendition of this card. I inadvertently used some inky Post-It tape to hold down my die. When I removed the tape, there were several smudges on the panel - smudges that I couldn't hide. So I had to re-stamp another panel.
Anyhoo, I'm glad I persevered. It felt really good to finish this card. I only wish my photography and computer skills were better. I actually cropped the picture so the candle it's sitting on didn't show. I did it twice, but even though I "saved" it, only the original picture showed up in my card folder. So I gave up. Do you feel my pain????
