Think Ink Challenge #19

Think Ink Challenge #19 is a makeover challenge! Participants are to make over an old card. Hope you'll play along for a chance to win free stamps! The complete details are HERE.

I didn't pick a very "old" creation to redo but I picked one from a couple of weeks ago because I kept saying "I should have" while I was making it! Here's the original piece:

The "I should have's" that I'm addressing in my made over piece are 1) I should have used some white to separate the images 2) I should have used spring like colors or even more than one color family. Hopefully this piece will give you inspiration for lots of color choices if you try this technique. HERE is a tutorial from the original card.

Stamps: Artful INKables Plant Prints
Paper: Papertrey White (base), Whisper White
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lavender, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Rose Red, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive
Accessories: Versamark Pad, Clear Detail Embossing Powder
