Ugh!!

Here's what NOT to do!! If you are trying to watercolor on paper that's NOT watercolor paper, do not use markers and then try to blend it in with the aqua painter *slapping forehead*!!! Is that a no-brainer or what?!! I was trying to get a good color of black or grey on my ant, they grey was too light, so I added a dab of black marker and wanted to spread it around. As it sat, it all bled out!! Yuck!!

Oh and by the way I so totally agree with you on those word/number verifications!!! I can't seem to get it right and then I leave no comments!!

I have the same problem. I was told that SU black ink was waterproof--NOT!!!! I have some versafine ink on order, but it still hasn't come. That stuff is hard to find. I hope it works better. Great work!

You mean your cards don't just instantly come together? I always look at your cards and think that they look so great. I seem to have to stamp things over and over some days just to get a half decent card. It is nice to see that you have some of those times too. Thanks for sharing that! :)

What a brave girl you are ... posting your mess-ups!!!!! I'm usually so disgusted with myself that I can't wait to trash them!! Sometimes, however, the mistakes turn into an artistically creative accident that is quite usuable. Thank you for sharing your unhappy event with us. I know I will take a lesson from you!!

If you hadnt of said anything about the ink running, I wouldnt of even noticed and I would of thought that was part of your design...it ended up looking great.
