Rebirth of the "Nearly-Trashed" Scrap

Hello friends!
Almost all the times Often times....
 we only want to show and share our very best work to our peer and love ones.
well, not me, no sirree.....
I am not shy about sharing failures.

It all started with the Altenew Radial Cover Die for this card.
s

 Previously I had used the spray mist over the cover die on Bristol paper.
It looked artsy and yet really messy and....I really didn't know what to do with it!
I thought it belongs to the garbage bin.

I let it sit for a while and didn't think much of it.
Then the idea of the Flowing Butterfly Stencil came to the rescue!
thanks for everything  

I decided to go for a silver metallic look.
For a change, instead of using white card stock, I used vellum for the entire card.
thanks for everything-001

I did ahere a piece of white card stock inside, so it is still easy to write messages.
thanks for everything-002


If you follow my blog for a while, you know that I am not shy in sharing my trials and error.
By sharing the "errors", I hope to improve and continue to grow.
AND that is why you should join my "Show & Share"!!
With the challenge, it prompts you to create and do better!

thanks for everything (2)

I am happy how I turned some "nearly-trashed" scraps into something decent.
 I hope that you enjoy seeing posts like this and feeling a little inspired....

Glad you didn't trash it! :)

What a difference a stencil and some silver metallic texture paste makes! That butterfly is so delicate and "makes" the card. Glad the hearts were saved!

Harriet said...

Excellent 'save'................... I appreciate your honesty that not every card is a winner; so we must find a way to save a card.

That piece made a great background for the butterfly!

I love that this was a reject and that you made it into a beautiful Virginia card...and it is, most definitely, beautiful.

This turned out fabulous!

I love all the textures of this! My messy looks a lot worse for sure! I tend to cut mine up and use it another way! I never throw it completely out for sure. It is all in being creative, right?

So beautiful!!

Somehow, I can't even begin to think of this as a fail! I am amazed at how pretty this card is. So glad you shared and didn't toss.
