Now having given up, I use the color ink I want and just put clear over it. The other technique that I am having a hard time with is coloring with alcohol markers or any marker to be quite honest here. I have such dreams....then I try it and it turns out ugly. Oh, and another thing is getting ink on my hands and accidentally touching some part of the cardstock that needs improvisation to cover. I get tired of putting flowers over spots instead of where I originally wanted them. How do I keep the ink off me???? Oh, the woes and learning curves to card making! But, having said all this I am still thrilled with what I CAN do to produce a pretty card!
I have the same problem with ink! What about forgetting to clean your mat and moving your card over it. Then you have ink all over the back. For my fingers I try to keep scrap cardstock to rub my fingers on, however it doesn't always work. One time I even got ink on my arm, then I started seeing it on my "white" desk, my card, everywhere! I didn't know where it came from! What a sad cardmaking time.
