Ok, I LOVE this sentiment and I think I'll be using it A LOT! TGF has had the release of two NEW Princess Anyas! I have got to have them! Anyway, to celebrate this, they're having a month long TGF Royalty contest with 4 weekly challenges. I made this card for The TGF Royalty Week 3 as well as TGF Farm Fresh Challenge - Get Sentimental. It was my second time using a digi (LOL, the first was a larger version of the same image just hours before, see previous post). Everything went well until the very end! I was using new cardstock as well which I had only used for the previous image that I had coloured earlier in the day. It is the X-press it blending card. It doesn't bleed AT ALL but, it also takes FOREVER to dry...I didn't know this and while attaching Dressy Joyce to the card, I got ink from the hair on my fingers which was then transferred to her face, oh no! It really is a shame because, aside from that, I love how it turned out! Like I have said before, I'm new with Copics so I wasn't sure how to remedy this...I used the colourless blender and my finger, LOL to remove the two little spots of brown ink...this worked however, in the process, I smudged the black from her eyelashes! I thought that printer ink wouldn't smudge..guess I was wrong..now her mascara is running and it seems permanent. I went over it again with the skin tone marker. It's not THAT bad, I suppose...but, I'm a perfectionist and I just can't leave her that way so...I am either going to reprint the image and colour the face again and paper piece it over top...or I will just colour an entirely new Dressy Joyce...I could use the practice anyhow...LOL...Live and Learn!
I will add new photos after I fix the face...I could probably do a better job on the photography anyway since I just used my iPhone, LOL.
