oops...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy, well my glasses are fixed thank goodness it was either the opticians or staple them to my head and I couldn't find any pink staples so the opticians it was, they even moulded the ends to a deeper curve so they wont fall off now...did you ever have one of those days when everything you touched you dropped, I call them cack handed days, I was colouring and dashing around late yesterday afternoon, got three cards ready for photos then I spilled my colouring water on them, I saved this one but only after the water had washed over her a little bit, I managed to save the hair with a it of dark brown but shes a little bit washed out on the face skin tones, I didn't have time to redo her and do the paper piecing again so had to just use the card, I hate my colouring not being right, the other two had to be binned though...right now I have explained about my card I will tell you about my card for today lol...its for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, this time its our wonderful June's choice and she chose the beautiful combo of Blue & White, I thought straight away of soft baby blues but then I bought this amazing paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...its one of the new Glitz pads and is called Vintage Blue, I am loving the pads I bought from these new ones they are lush papers and I love the patterns in this one, I haven't a clue what this fabulous Tilda is called but I coloured (and water washed lol) her with distress inks and paper pieced her beautiful dress...I added some lace, 2 ribbons and a Prima Audrey Rose - Snow rose and a few pearls to finish...the lush sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and Charisma Cardz challenge...I'm remaking my two cards today so don't think I will be heading out...have a wonderful day everyone and watch out for glasses full of inky water

Ooh Mina I bet you were gutted after spending all that time. This one looks lovely tho and if you hadn't told us we'd never have known. I'm always anxious with liquids on the table. My darling hubby kindly plonks a mug of tea in the middle of everything for me and it freaks me out LOL hope the new ones work out ok. I'll be watching out for them.

Tine said...

Hi Mina. Thanks for popping by. I have to craft now with glasses on (the penalties of growing older!!!) for colouring etc. When I don't need them I shove them up on my head - but that gives me a headache & when I take them off I lose them! Can't win! LOL
Love the dp - very classy and you wouldn't know that Tilda had had a mishap at all. She looks great!
Tine :)
