and this is the new, improved version:
They used gel pens to bring out the tails of the kites, thus breaking up the overpowering diagonal. Also added was some shimmer pen to the edges of the kites, which helps set them off from the background. I am so fortunate to have friends who can give a fresh eye to my stamping projects when I am at my wit's end!
Looking forward to getting my fingers inky again later this week,
