Hope this finds all doing well. Still fighting a migraine. This little cutie didn't help any. I made a couple of Rookie mistake with her. I had everything layed out to put the card together and then got distracted & some of my elements got seprated. Did not realize that I left the Dots out till I started to input the challenges. That wasn't too much of a biggy. However the big mistake was when I got cocky after coloring the body. I have been afraid of using black. When I first started card making it was Halloween so black was a big factor. Well, I didn't like how my black turned out. The reason for this is that I only had one shade to work with. Kind of hard to get more than a flat black effect when your only using one marker. Well, I decided that since I now had a few more marks to try black again. Well, her face gave me a BIG Reality Check!!!!!!! I lost controll of the color. At one point all I had was a BIG Black Spot!!! Since I'm working with limited resources right now. I had no choice but to at least try and see if I could save this one. After HOURS and I do mean HOURS of working with it I was able to save her. She was to be my Niece's Mothers Day card from her two boys. But I put sooooo much into this one I don't think that I can let her go. You know, I have got to stop that. I can't seem to let them go. Well, it is Derby week here in Kentucky this week. And that means HATS. I think that is what drew me to this one. I've renamed her Oswalds Goes to the Derby.
Well, since it looks like I am going to have to make my niece another card I had better get to the details of my entry. Thank you for considering my entry! Have a good rest of the week!!
