This card has been a nightmare to create! First off I just had a piece of green textured card for my base and used my red Waco pearl maker pen to add some corner dot details .. .. oh my! what a mess! So out came the craft knife and the offending dots got scraped off before they could set too hard. To cover up any hint of where they had been I added the spotty dotty paper from my Christmas stash box. It's a little card, just a 4" square white base, so I had to find a small image and this Bildmalarna cutie got a second inking. I cut a Nestie blossom circle from the green card for my mat and coloured the image with Copics. But, that was yesterday afternoon - by this morning my YG13 green had turned yellow .. .. eek! I've gone over the wreath bands again but they are still showing yellow and not blending with yesterday's colouring .. .. I'm finding my Copic colouring is fading a lot, especially the paler shades, and some are changing colours too - the worst are the violet and the yellow/greens. Anybody else having this problem? I love my Copics but getting cards ready for a craft fair I found several that had faded so badly that I just couldn't use them .. .. and that's not a good thing for getting a repeat order. So, to finish off today I added crystal glitter to the white areas, diecut the Marianne poinsettias, coloured a Cuddly Buddly digi sentiment and crossed my fingers that the red Waco pearls would work this time - well they aren't too bad.
The Incy Wincy challenge this week is for spots and dots so I can enter my card with them. Not sure of any other challenges as I've not been on line much over the past few days and need to catch up. I had psyched myself up for a filling at the dentist this morning, but then got a phone call to say my dentist was sick, ok - big sigh of relief, but the next available appointment isn't for 4 weeks .. .. ah well, not to worry eh!
