Black & pink Birthday Girl (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Take a look at the mess I made of this image! I was blissfully colouring her hair in black and greys then took my hand away to see I had smeared black copic ink all over her pretty face! I sat dumbfounded for a couple of minutes wondering if I should throw the whole thing away but then decided this was a test of my craftiness hehe. 

So I printed her out exactly the same size, coloured just her face then fussy cut the original image and glued her "hair" carefully onto the new image and voila, good as new!! Instead of keeping this my "dirty" little secret (pardon the pun haha), I decided to share with you all so that if it ever happens to you, you know all is not lost.

Now onto my card and this stunning image comes from Crafts and Me, the artist is Hannah Lynn. These papers are from Bo Bunny, my favourite paper company.

Here's another card I have created with this image:

  1. Lucy, this is a lovely card, such a gorgeous image and card design. Thank you for joining us this time at A Gem of a Challenge.

  2. I did that often too. If you use black Copic, it's a little bit tacky and you smear it open with your hand while colouring. Now I put a Kleenex under my hand when I colour with black and it helps ;-)
    I really love your card! Great job!

  3. Wow, Lucy. What a great job you did fixing this. I hate fussy cutting but I would make an exception for this. Beautiful card.
