Daily Special - Technique Day - Oops, I Made A Mistake and I Needed to Cover It Up Technique

Today's Daily Special is Technique Day and the technique is called "Oops I Made A Mistake and I Needed to Cover It Up". Haha! Just kidding. . .it's not a real technique. It was one of those days. . . I really hate wasting material and especially, starting over. If I've worked on something, even for 10 minutes. . .well, 10 minutes is 10 minutes. If I make a mistake, I refuse to waste the 10 minutes I spent creating the mistake. . .I'll add, change, do something - anything to fix it. Well this was the case with the 1st card below. The second card came out fine, it's the first one that I'm talking about.

I stamped the "Bodacious Bouquet" image on to scrapbook paper but the color was a bit too light so I decided to use a marker to outline the image. Well, after drinking coffee, my hand was a bit shaky and my outline looked terrible. To cover the shaky outline, I applied Crystal Effects which usually works to cover up mistakes but it didn't in this case. My application of the Crystal Effects unfortunately was shaky too. Ugghhhh!! So to cover that up, I applied micro beads which made it worse because well the beads where shaky looking too. Annoying, annoying, ANNOYING! So what the heck, while I was at it. . .I decided to cover up the whole flower with Crystal Effects. I was hoping for some miracle. . .well, it didn't work.

Because I worked so hard to fix it, I decided to keep it. Just to end my misery, I pasted the images on a beautiful DP by K&Co, tied a ribbon, and decided not to do anything else to it. Like I said, it's one of those days.

On the bright side, the second card came out the way I wanted it. Both cards were made with the "Bodacious Bouquet" and K&Co Scrapbook paper. This is the last two cards I'll be making with this set until I come across the set again on some other day. . .which may not be until next year! Ha! I'm on my "B" sets right now and I still have the rest of the alphabet to cover.

I created a sketch for only the 2nd card because there's nothing much to the first card.

Until later.. . . .
