Fixing Mistakes!

Can you say arggggg! 

I hate when a mistake happens when you are just about finished colouring an image! I usually add "glimmer" as a last step when I am making a card, but for some reason today I decided to do it before I was finished! WHAT WAS I THINKING!!! I decided to finish up the sunglasses with my black Sakura gel pen and then while I got dressed it would have time to dry. I messed up on one and tried to fix it (left image) and while I did that my sleeve dragged across the other image (right image).

What a mess right!!!! So rather than throw out my hard work I decided to try to fix it!

Using a scrap piece of X-Press It Copic paper I  stamped just the part of the lady's head and coloured that in. I then fussy cut around her head and like paper piecing I glued it over my mistakes.

And………Voila you can hardly tell anything is different! 
The day has been saved LOL!

So the next time you make a mistake, think about doing something similar to this, after all who want to throw out something they worked so hard on!

Chat at you later,

P.S. I'll post the card and supplies at a later date when I get it all finished!
