Hi Kate - They're NOT awful, they're just not finished! You have made 2 pretty backgrounds. You need to add to them. Maybe a matted image or tag with some ribbon. And you know, you don't have to use the whole thing on one card - you can cut it into strips or triangles, etc. Play with them and repost!!!.

Hi, Kate. You've definitely got the technique. As Arlene said, they just aren't finished. Do some layering, add a tag, add some ribbon or eyelets or wire. Try cutting apart the background as suggested and layering it that way. You are off to a great start. Be sure to post the finished products! Have fun!
