THE GOOD AND THE BAD



Hello Everyone...
A very uneventful day today thank goodness...and was given a new "Lady' to take care of 7 nights a week just for 1/2 hour as a check up, so will help a bit with pocket money...as I've lost 3 clients in the last few weeks and it leaves a large hole in the budget..

Have a card to share which was a total nightmare, but I ploughed on, covered boo boo's, and it is what it is...



I loved colouring this gorgeous image from Mo's Digital Pencil  and really enjoyed colouring with Faber Castell pencils and added a few copics.. and the image is called
Spring Fairy Puddle  ...



Then things went wrong...but I fixed most of it...the bubbles are a little wooden stamp set that I've had forever...about 10 of them in a set for $4.99...that helped hide some blotches...

Added the mesh, that was a lolly bag and the kids gave it to me, so cut the end off and threaded it over the entire bottom half of the image, which helped hide the mess I made with the reeds stamps...


Added corrugated torn card scraps and added beads for the bottom of the sea,and a shell...a few die cut leaves and some bubble wrap reeds..that seems to have hidden the rest of my mess..lol..[the ink ran as I used a coloured pencil paper...not recommended for inks...live and learn..

Going to enter this card at..
 Mo's Digital Pencil  [water,water,everywhere]
Wags n Whiskers  [Fairytales and fantasy]
Milk coffee challenge  [shoe your colouring skills]

Thanks for stopping by, and all the great comments you leave, really appreciate it..

Luv CHRISSYxx
