Sweet Talk From the Heart

1st Redo
My 1st card stinks but here it is anyway. Surely did not turn out as I visioned it while I was at work today. This is my pitiful attempt at today's SKETCH CHALLENGE which I normally enjoy doing and usually do a fare job on. Hope this is not a sign of how the rest of my year is going to go. Image is stamped in black stazon then colored w/Prisma Color pencils and blended w/Gamsol. The bird is covered w/white liquid applique then white fun flock. The certainly celery layer is stamped w/Pettite Patterns using real red. The hearts on the string are covered w/crystal effects.
So I called Shannon with begs of HELP I LOST MY MOJO and here is the results of her suggestions. Like this much better.
Stamps: Sweet Talk, From the Heart, Petite Patterns
Paper: Real Red, Taken w/teal, Certainly Celery
Ink: Black Stazon, Real red
Accessories: Prisma Color Pencils, Gamsol, Blender Stumps, Crystal Effects, Gold Heart Brad
Techniques: Gamsol Magic, Faux ribbon

Both cards are great but I really enjoy the color combination you used on the Redo - just awesome!
