There are no mistakes when stamping, just creative challenges. You get an ink spot on your card, no problem, that is why there are pearls and rhinestones. If it's a large smudge, they have stamps for that! Goregous Grunge and Timeless Textures are two of my creative challenge stamps. They fix a number of challenges I encounter with stamping. When you have a crooked saying, your challenge is to find the perfect punch, punches where you can stamp the saying and place it over the original.
Then there are those Creative Challenges that I am famous for…stop laughing! Yesterday, I was coloring my card for club and decided it need a little more detail. I decided to cut out a portion of the background, so you could see more of the goregous background paper. While I was fussy cutting around my rose, my inner "self" says, hey I have the die cut for this, you can just use that and mount it between two panels of white card stock! So, with out really thinking it thru I cut it out. What was I thinking? All the colored parts of that flower and leaves were laying on my big shot in little pieces! Well, I didn't have time to do another card, so I creatively picked up and glued down every little piece of that flower and it's leaves. Here is my Rose Wonder (perfect name for this stamp set) creative challenge card.
