New digistamps = Colour stain

SIGH ... sometimes I amaze myself with my stupidity, and I have not quite figured out yet whether I 'really' am a little stupid, or it's just that I normally have about 10 issues swirling around in my mind, so that I do not concentrate properly! This card is a perfect example! The digistamp is a new one in the shop and called  'Colour stain".
Can YOU see where I went wrong with the colouring? grrr ... will re-do it another day. Right now am too busy hopping on one leg from kicking myself! The nail varnish level inside the bottle is angled wrongly - it should be level, horizontal, from left-to-right and NOT at an angle like I coloured it! Even IF the bottle was tipped, the surface should be horizontal with the earth's surface (unless I'm standing on the moon which I'm not!). Funny how one only sees errors AFTER one has photographed the card.

Now that I've finished hopping on one leg, I can tell you a little about what I used. The image eas coloured with alcohol pens, and I added 3 layers of glossy accents to the spilt nail varnish. The butterfly is made up of 2 layers - one with pink/silver foil, and the top later with acetate and a glittered edge. The bunting is made from small shapes I cut out of self-made Washi tape (I'm busy with a tutorial!).

New items used - digistamp, handmade Washi tape
Old items used - DP from stash, glitter glue


  1. Stunning Margy. Well then I am even more stupid than you, because I would not even have noticed the wrong level in the bottle if you have not mentioned it, but that's the perfectionist in you coming out. Just love the effect the glossy accents gave to the puddle of varnish.

  2. Hey, Margy! I love that you have "oops" moments, too! I wouldn't bother redoing this because most will not notice--they will be focused on the bottle, not the level of liquid (as I was)! That said, I love this new image!
