Snowman and the Christmas Tree
Have you ever made a card, been very pleased with your coloring and embellishments and so you reach to put it up somewhere where it can dry and then...the dreaded happens! Your finger, sleeve or some other object brushes across wet paint and smears the not-yet-dry creation?
This is my story with this card. Sigh....
There were three red dots of dimension paint just in front of the sentiments. The paint is permanent from the standpoint that once the color hits the paper, it is there. However it takes a while to dry hard. In real life this card has a big red smear just in front of the words "O Christmas Tree" and so, after a little bit of cursing I decided that I'd attach a red polka dot ribbon right on it, cover it and...VOILA! No one will notice....maybe...I hope.
The image is from Sunshine Designs and is watercolored with Tombow markers and water and a paint brush.

I thought embellishments were made to cover smears and oops places :) Beautiful card.ReplyDelete
I was wondering what type of paper you are using for your watercoloring-some papers just "pil" up on me when i try to watercolor with the Tombows and others won't let the color flow.ReplyDelete
Jennifer your card is amazing, great watercoloring. I always have mistakes, usually I put my finger in something before its completely dried.ReplyDelete
Love the project even with the "mistake". I think that's part of the wonder of creating... the fun of covering up and "fixing" mistakes..Love the card.ReplyDelete
