Accidents will happen

I'm sneaking in a quick make tonight just to prove that I haven't wasted the whole weekend.

It's been really hot and humid here, and I've not really felt doing much at all.  I've been feeling a bit 'meh' (must be in need of a holiday!!) but I decided to use one of my new images to try to perk myself up a bit.

And whoa, talk about clean and simple - I hope you're sitting down for this one  :0)

Plus, I only added the pearls in order to qualify to enter the Bunny Zoe challenge!!!

Ok, so you might wonder what the 'accident' was from the post title?  Well, I'd finished colouring the image, and I don't know what happened, perhaps something in the paper, but on the girlie with the pink dress, 2 black flecks appeared near her hem.  I have no idea where they came from.  One minute they weren't there, the next they were all my eye was drawn to.  :0(   I was so annoyed as I'd literally just finished, so I tried to cover them up with a white pen, which looked worse!

In the end, I had die cut a Nottingham Border in white for another card, and the little 'negative' bits that come out of the flowers were waiting to be popped out.  So I poked them out and created a dinky little flower on her dress using them, and dropped a pearl pen dot in the middle.  Yeah, sure it's not meant to be there, but I thought it didn't look too bad, and saved me either paper-piecing her dress, or worse, starting again.

So, my first Uptown Girl card.  Boy these images are huge!!!

So beautiful and a great cas card. Not my suual style either but. I have made a cas card for a friend which will be blogged later this week, similar style and I love it. Very ingenious with the flower, looks oerfect on her dress. Often you can cover up on a card and nobdoy would know.

LOVE your card Netty and if you hadn't said you'd dropped some ink, I'd have thought that was utterly by design. I think the lil' flower fix is perfect! Clever you! Love the stamps and your gorgeous CAS card style. Hugs, Wends x

Oh my! You are right about the size of these stamps, but then they are so fab that they demand to be centre stage. Awesome CAS hun, and what an ace save with the flower, it looks brilliant. I do hate those pesky flecks, the atmosphere must be riddled with them..... Beautiful work. Hugs xx

PS... pen splatter is usually MY culprit!

Kat W said...

CAS perfection! I adore this image (and all the SB images!) but colouring the dresses always turns me into a nervous wreck! I have a different SB image on my desk right now and I think I may have ruined the dress on it so may need to start again :-( Hey ho.

I think it was a happy accident with your black specks as the little flower looks so sweet and really like it was meant to be there :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Gorgeous card! I love this stamp I'm gettin it for my birthday in a couple weeks! :-) oh I've had those naughty specks before too! But when they appear on the characters face there's not much hiding them so I called them freckles! Hehe
Lovely CAS design and your colouring is so fab!
