First this was a perfect card size. Embossed the hello and screwed up so cut off the bottom. Now I have a lop sided card....ahhhh get out the slit punch and make a nice closing card. Stamp the hello on the side of the card.
Next I stamped art of life flower colouring the stem and the flower. Stamp down 3 times to get the variation in colour and depth.
OK here comes the mistake.
I took an aqua painter thinking I just love it when I see the background kind of washed and it makes the image pop off the page. Well I picked up carmel and tried to go behind the image....did not work so I got mad and took the aqua painter and just squished out water and swooshed it all over just to make it unuseable. This is what happened.....LOL I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I even signed it like a painter....hehehee

WOW! You need to make mistakes like this more often! I will have to think twice the next time I get so frustrated. Maybe set the 'mistake' aside for a day or so. Not convenced mine would make such an awesome turnover like yours did! TFS! YOU did a TERRIFIC job! bb

You should mess up more often because this looks AWESOME - I'm going to try it on purpose!
