I created this card for my friend Verda, but after it was finished I knew that this wouldn't work as she has very poor eyesight and I could see that the image and the background would all blend together when she looked at it! She uses a magnifying glass to look at the cards I make for her and has her visiting nurse describe the detail to her. I needed to fix this problem - what to do?
I knew I needed a lighter color behind the little witch to create a contrast between her and the background paper - but nothing I tried gave me the answer to the problem and also looked like it was part of the planned layout of the card. I tried different colors and shapes of CS, different stamp images - nothing worked. I had almost given up and accepted the fact that I would have to make her a different card (I could have made two cards in the time I spent stamping, cutting and then discarding in trying to solve this problem.)
Then I found this little ghost stamp that I had never used and forgotten I had. Could that work?
Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you lots of good Halloween treats!
