Full Participation Required

So I was making a card today. Of course using watercolor markers and stamps, my new favorite thing. Well it didn't start out as a card, I was just playing with the Position-It stamping tool but then my stamp took shape so I started building the card.

Now I would hope each of you has been in the same spot as me, don't make me feel totally inept. I put the whole card together then remembered I hadn't stamped my sentiment.

Of course, it didn't turn out .... here's the picture ...


So here's where the "Full Participation Required" part comes in. I haven't finished my "fix" but what I wanted from readers is any tips and tricks you have up your sleeve for ways to fix and and all card blunders you've encountered.

For this card and blunder, I found an ink pad in the same tone as my card stock and I am layering up the off-white with a Q-tip to cover the "over stamp" on the edges of my sentiment. I have enlarged the sentiment to help show my mistake. It was darker and I have already applied a few layers of off-white pigment ink to start the covering process.

We'll ignore the fact that it is slightly crooked, that I won't be able to fix and will have to live with that particular mistake.


So please post your fixes in the comments of this blog. And don't forget those entries will put your name in to win the Pixie Powders used in the February 13th blog "Fun With Pigment Powders".
