Stampin' Diva adding ink!

I hope you like my imaginative title for this post, it's all about the challenge blogs rather than me.

This card has one of those oops moments, smarty pants here had used the spritzer tool and spritzed the card base and flowers using the Stamp n Write markers Melon Mambo (lge flower), Tempting Turquoise (med flower) Rich Razzleberry (small flower), then I sat the flowers beside each other and spritzed them with shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol (you know that's one of my favourites) then I put the card together and it looked pretty good but I decided to spritz shimmer paint all over the finished card and well....colours bled.  *sigh* see we ALL make mistakes!

  1. I think it looks great, the colors add to the vintage look! Love the stamped border/background too!

  2. Bleeding colours and all it looks lovely. Love the speckly vintage look and mix of wonderful friend sentiments.
