I've a long post today with lots of pictures. I captured the unthinkable when colouring this image with Copics. This has happened to me before but it still was an OH NO moment. First I'll show the finished card that I will be entering into Totally Papercrafts Challenge #168 which asks for buttons.
At Saturated Canary they have a challenge that calls for "hair that is different"....well this one sure is different! If you stick with me here you'll see why.
Usually when I begin colouring an image I start with the skin, then the hair but with this adorable image I thought the nightie was a challenge for me so started with it first, leaving the hair to the last. And this is what happened!
My E29 gave off a HUGE drop of ink !!!! All the blotting in the world won't remove this mess.
On reflection I think this happens when I use very light strokes and this causes the ink to accumulate....that's what I'm thinking anyway!
Now to the rescue! I printed off another image and just coloured the area I needed to use for the repair. Looks like a hair piece...which I guess it is (smile). I use a black marker around the cut edges so no white is showing before attaching.
Finished....an hours colouring saved from the bin!
