Video: Saving a Card with a Great Sentiment
Hey there! Daniel here with a great way to salvage blunders we all make in our workspaces. I promise you no awe-inspiring new trick. But I can assure you, the stamp set I use to fix my happy accidents will knock your socks off! Affirmation Messages features some super whimsical and funky fonts accompanied by retro graphics.
Watch the video below to see how this card came to be. Or click HERE to watch on YouTube.
To create this card, I laid down the Sunflower Field Heroscape layers in Green Apple, then Pine, Butter Bar, Caramel and Cup O' Joe inks. I stamped down the Shine/Sun sentiment from the Affirmation Messages set. Next, I arrayed the farm scene out in my Hero Arts Mini MISTI and stamped it all down with Intens-ified Black Ink. I created a cloudy sky with the Summer Sky ink and a blender brush. Then, I noticed I had messed up the panel by mixing the blue and yellow inks. Also, the sun can't be seen so clearly through clouds. So I grabbed one of the sentiments I had stamped and fussy cut and popped it up over the sun. I saved my project!!
For my second card, I masked out a scene using the Welcome Neighbor stamp set. But when I blended some blue up from the houses, black ink from the mask I used smeared up into the sky. Never fear! I finished coloring my project with Copics, blended in some Wet Cement on the bottom, finished the sky and covered my blunder with another fussy-cut sentiment!
If you watch the video, you'll find a third bonus card that I made error free! Well, almost!! I used a stamp set Hero Arts no longer carries. So to fix it, I recommended a very suitable replacement called Winter Forest Animals! It just goes to show you, mistakes are just opportunities to innovate!
Thanks for hanging out with me a bit! I hope you get a chance to mess up a project and fix it today!
