Thinking of You Always

Hi - I didn't think I'd make it here this week, too much life going on!!  I decided to quickly share a card I put together at the Autism Crop last Saturday.  This was the one and only card I made that day, and I wanted to try some different watercoloring techniques.  I inked the stamp with Distress Markers and then stamped on watercolor paper and lastly I spritzed the paper as I wanted the ink to feather out.  Well, after one spritz I wasn't happy as one side worked better than the other.  So I spritzed again, and then the pink began to run.  So I spritzed again, lol and gave up. At this point I thought it was a complete fail.  But I loved the colours so i decided to stamp a sentiment - it was crooked, lol.  Still I was determined, so I trimmed the image, tilted it this way, layered it over some pretty pink paper and tilted it that way and oila!!  I also doodled a black border.


Not a bad rescue I think :)  I'm sharing this at Unity's Friend's With Flair.  I'm also sharing at Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything Goes and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.  

Have a good weekend!!  I'm off to the States tomorrow to find my daughter a grad dress.....

Supplies:
Stamp:  Unity Blossoming Thoughts & Wishes
Ink:  Distress Markers, Versafine Onyx Black

Even for a "fail", it's a very pretty card. I think the running ink gives it a grunge look.

You did a great job. Sometimes our "near" misses end up being our best work.
