Shoulda Gone To Spec Savers!!!

Morning! Time for another challenge over at Delicious Doodles. This week were playing BINGO and boy did I have fun and games with this card!!! Firstly I  printed the image out slightly larger than I normally would which meant that I struggled to fit it onto my normal sized card. That was fairly easily resolved by cutting her out and putting her directly onto one of the layers. However, something that couldn't so easily be resolved was my major boo boo with the faux stitching - LOL :/  Have you spotted it yet? Nooo then maybe we should book a group session at Specsavers - LOL!!! I only went and used a blue gel pen for the stitching! Now in my defense, it was late at night and I don't have access to one of those daylight lamps and my gel pens are all tossed in a box and look very similar, so it was an easy mistake to make! :D Some how me thinks I'm seriously over due an eye test!

Anyway, here's the card - with blue stitching in tact (I might try dry brushing some acrylic paint over it to bring the colour down and just hope that whoever the unlucky recipient is thinks it's part of the design!).

Well that's it from me today - I've gotta save me eyesight dontcha know!

Have a fab weekend

  5. I think it looks fine! In fact if you hadn't mentioned it I wouldn't have given it another look! LOL xxx

  6. I think night time crafting is the problem, not needing glasses. I have to say daylight bulbs are good.. I had the same problem at night distinguishing navy blue and black tights in my working days..
