So sorry

Why am I sorry....??? Well because I am not happy with this card at all and did not do this gorgeous stamp by Sylvia at Wee Stamps justice what so ever. When I coloured this image for this sketch - from The Sweet Stop - I had a different picture of how it would turn out. I don't know why I don't like it. Maybe it is the size of the Silver Fairy or maybe it is the colours. I can't figure it out. But to suffice to say I am not happy and thus I haven't completely finished the card. So a big sorry to Sylvia for not doing a very good job with this.

A close up. I printed this out a couple times and layered up some of the bits like the hair wings, dress and shin covers. I truly am not happy with this at all. I suppose we are our own biggest critics.

All I can say is "TGIF"....!!!!! I have my Copic Intermediate Certification on Sunday. Looking forward to that.

bye. Enjoy your weekend.

We are our own worst critics I think at times!! YOu have coloured the fairy beautifully!! I think perhaps if you had of used plain cardstock for the strips of paper perhaps that would have lifted the picture as there is a lot of colour!!! But personally I love it... Hugs xx

Hi Trace,
I am also doing my Intermediate certification on Sunday! Plus the project class tomorrow. Hope I don't get called in to work on Monday! LOL!
As for your card... your colouring is gorgeous as usual! We are all so critical of our own work. I just noticed my colouring out of the lines on my recent blog post! Eeek! I think my 5 year old daughter could do better!

See you Sunday!
