Mulan: Take Two

Mulan: Revamped
New Image next to Old Image

Original Card
Ever take a second look at a card in your stash and think "Wow, that's great except for..."?  Well, that's what happened when I went looking for a birthday card one day recently.  I really liked how this card turned out when I originally made it in March 2011 (see the original post HERE), but looking at it now made me realize how my coloring skills have evolved over the past year and a half.  I couldn't give this card to someone with the image the way it was!  Hence Mulan- Revamped.  I printed a new, larger version of the Sassy Studio Designs image, Mulan Honey, and colored her with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers.  I fussy cut her and used foam squares to pop her up then finished off the inside of the card for an added touch.

I have never done anything like this with one of my cards, but I'm glad I did in this instance!  I'm quite pleased with the face lift and was happy to give it away.  The recipient seemed to enjoy it too so that's what counts!

I am off to work on my Simply B(etty) Stamps project for Day 9 of the 13 Days of Halloween next...  Check back tomorrow to see what I've been up to!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E04, R20, W4, W6, W8, W10, R81, E37, E39, G03, G05, G07, G09) and Prismacolor Art Markers (150, 169).
