Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes + Option of Sparkle & Bling!

Good Morning!
If you are wondering where my project for today's EVERYBODY ART challenge is then I am afraid I do not have one, I simply didn't have time to make it but I do hope you will still join in! The new Challenge is to make a Book Card!

However I do have a card to share with you for today's PAPERTAKE WEEKLY Challenge which is Anything Goes + Option of Sparkle & Bling!. However yet again I have a problem with this card...
Don't you just hate it when you manage to finish your card just for it to mess up right at the end? I put 3D Gloss on my coloured image as I usually do but for some reason whilst it was drying the red ink decided to bleed from tilda's collar! Trust me I am not happy :(

This card fits the Challenges at:
JUST MAGNOLIA & HANGLAR - CHRISTMAS IS COMING!
SIMON SAYS STAMP - ANYTHING GOES




Copic Ciao Markers - C1, C3, E00, E21, E31, E33, R11, R27, R59


RECIPE:
Magnolia Stamps
Magnolia Papers
Magnolia Doohickey Die 'Vintage Tag'
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sizzix Originals Snowflakes Die
3D Gloss, Glitter, Dew Drops & Ribbon from Stash

Thanks for Popping By!
Happy Crafting!

Hi Hon

I totally understand you!! I had the same thing happening to one of my cards and I was really angry about myself. The card looks adorable though, well done. Love how you decorated the red flowers on your card. What did you put on them to make them look like iced flowers?

Hugs, Gerda

I have had this happen to me also with red!!!!!!!
No need to worry,your card is gorgeous regardless. I love this adorable angel!

Danielle said...

Yep... it did happend to me and GRRRRRR I was angry. Though I did not start all over... it is an experience I will remember, and it is "manual work"... not mechanic, so these things happend. Your Tilda is quite lovely, and the red and white contrast is beautiful. Love the ice on your flowers, lovely layout and rich colors.

Gorgeous card Nat :-) Tilda is lovely and the papers and embellies are fab :-)

I never noticed the red bleeding until you mentioned it xx very weird tho,, it really shouldn't do that ! It has happened to me with watercolours but not with copics ! :-/

luv

Very pretty Nat, love the red and white combination. The smudgy red looks a bit like a shadow so doesn't ruin your card just a different look than you intended. Delightful

Beautiful card, Nat! I know how frustrating it is to have it mess up right at the end! I did the same thing last week with mine when I dropped an ink pad right onto Tilda's face! LOL! So you're not alone! But your card is gorgeous!
hugs, Sharon

How adorable! Don't you worry about any little "mistakes" on cards; that's the reason why they are handmade; this is what makes them special! And yours is definitely lovely and so delicate! Love it!
I'm glad you could share it with us at Just Magnolia this week!
