A masculine card

Good evening

I was going through my digis and stamps ... looking for a stamp I wanted to use for a challenge ... when I found this little beauty in my Tiddly Inks Digis folder.  I totally forgot I had him and just had to colour him straight away.

I'm really happy with how the image turned out.  I used the following copic markers:-
C00, C1, C3, YR23, YR16 and BG18 ..... that's not many!

I then used some gorgeous cardstock and some Kaisercraft scrapbooking papers.  It needed something more so I popped some little square metal brads in the corners.  It still didn't look quite right ... so I put glossy accents all over the image .... aaahhh that's better.

OH NO!  Guess what happened!!!!  The glossy accents was almost dry and silly me put something on top of it! My own fault!!!!  If my desk wasn't such a cluttered mess I would have seen the card sitting there ... oh no!

 This is the result of my silliness .... a great big mess in his face and body ........ :(

So I have covered it all with heaps more Glossy Accents .... waited overnight for it to dry and below is how it turned out.

There are lots of little bubbles through it ..... and really I should have coloured the image again but my Husband liked the effect .. said it made him look more like tin/metal.  So I have left it.

So perhaps today I should tidy my desk!!!!  Yep will get to it after some colouring .... ha ha ha ha.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
iCopic Weekly Challenge #54 - Masculine
Tiddly Inks - #71 Anything Goes
ClourQ - Colour Pallete

  2. Shhh, your not suppose to tell anyone you made a mistake, chances are they won't notice. I wouldn't have! He is adorable and what fantastic gear DP that is!

    LOL - My desk is the same way! It's like a demolition happened after I finish a card. I either need a bigger desk or need to be better at putting things away immediately.

    Good luck with all of your challenges and thanks for joining us at Tiddly Inks this week.

  3. I would have never noticed either!! LOL - but I do have to say that I've done this same thing too many times to count - and I always get so mad at myself!! Love this fun robot card! The gear paper is so fun!

  4. Great card! I love the glossy accents on your image and I can't see anything of your little accident. I love the design paper you used, it is so perfect for the image. Thanks for joining us at the Tiddly Inks challenge this week.
