It's late here, and I've just finished my latest card. I thought I'd take a quick look at the new challenge and sleep on it. Seeing it was mixed media I thought I'd quickly whip up a distress paint background so I'd have it ready in the morning. Instead of snapping the cap off the bottle I screwed the lid off. While I'm doing this I am of course expecting a stop value to be in action, so holding the bottle sideways as I'm moving about didn't concern me at all. Until the contents of the Seedless Preserve paint ejected out of the bottle onto my lap and KER-splat onto the carpet. YIKES!!! Thankfully no one cares about this old carpet which hasn't presented well for years, but what and awful mess to clean up just the same.
