Flower Power class is no longer available for new students. Those who signed up can take the class anytime!
Some folks think I never totally botch art projects – and that couldn’t be further from the truth! But one thing I do that could be different from YOUR approach to messes: I don’t give up.

The dark purple flower is the one that had to go through a million transformations…the end result isn’t my favorite card but it’s still very pretty!
The light purple flower did totally different things than I thought, but I love this look!
The leftover circle of Neenah scrap needed just a little embellishing – and I chose a vellum butterfly so I could see the color through it!

I love that you keep it real Sandy!
They all turned out great Sandy and yes I now the feeling, I had a little oeps moment this week with a background and didn’t make it over, I finished my card and no one noticed it.
What I have seen with the lift ink when the stamp is more intricate or busy is repeating the proces that makes the line lighter.
You will have to do first the whole proces, stamping, buffing and stamp of your stamp before you start over. I hope that will help you.
Thank you for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.
Awesome creations, thanks for sharing how you saved an undesirable first try with alcohol inks!
Keep at it until the paper cries “Uncle!” I think this will be my new motto. Why have a hobby if you can’t have fun at it, right?
