Tips To Help Fix Common Crafty Mistakes by Susan


Hi,
DT Susan happy to be up on the blog with a few of my most used techniques - most used not favorites - there is a difference lol!!! I make a LOT of mistakes while crafting. I think everyone does. The card is one which I have already posted as a Mood Board card for May but I wanted to show you that a repaired card looks as good as one that has no mistakes. See below.


First mistake, I used Wilted Violet Distress Oxide for ink blending. I, then, splattered it with some perfect peals and then I stuck the palm of my hand in it removing most of the ink. SOLUTION: Cover it with a die cut! In this case I used our Circle Scribbles die. See that big white spot - yup hand print! Covers up nicely right?



Next mistake - embossing powder embossed where it doesn't belong. Yes, I used my Embossing Buddy to remove static and moisture but in this humid Florida weather that doesn't always work. So to remove extraneous flakes of heat set powder, gently scrape them off with a craft knife.

 The last mistake happens almost every time I make a card - I go out of the lines when coloring. I fix that with a white gel pen. I always, always, always have my white gel pen on hand - ALWAYS lol!!!


So here is the card that resulted from all these mistakes. As I explained earlier - I posted it last week into the Mood Board Event for May.


Thank you for visiting the blog, and I hope you have more confidence in fixing mistakes now.
