I needed a card for my neighbor who lost her husband quite suddenly. I had the hardest time with this card. I cut and blended the scallop, stamped the bird, colored with copics, cut the dark green oval and adhered it. Then I decided it needed the eye on the bird more defined so I got out my black enamel accents. I was so careful but it blobbed right out in a chunk on the birds eye. I used my fingernail to scrape some of it away and got it on the edge of the scallop. When I tried to get it off, the color came off with it. So I reblended and it didn't. Acck! So I started over. Blended, stamped the bird with gray ink this time thinking the color would look better. Colored with copics. It did not look better. Started over. Cut new scallop, blended, stamped, colored, turned over dark green oval and applied the glue to the oval, and promptly dropped the whole oval on the top of the card. I grabbed it and moved it to the bottom, but not where I wanted it. I had glue all over the card under the sentiment and the oval was stuck on too close to the bottom. I was afraid to try to move it, so there it is! How could something so simple go so wrong? I used a linen look background stamp that I didn't quite get the card up high enough so I had to cut a little off the top. The only thing that came out well was the sentiment that I embossed with clear embossing powder. I didn't mess that up hardly at all. So with a lot of nerve I am actually entering this card into two challenges. One in
and one in
Then I ask you, could this possibly be comfortable?
Be kind to one another.
