I Thank My Lucky Stars For You

Hi, guys!  Today's card came about after I had a spray ink mishap! I was trying to use my Dylusions Spray inks on one of my stencils, but it bled underneath the stencils (too much ink!).  I loved the colors and HATE to waste anything.  So I decided to punch stars out of the papers, and loved how they looked.  I embossed the card with the Cuttlebug Star embossing folder and placed some of the punched stars in the centers of the embossed ones.

I thought the sentiment by Hero Arts is perfect for this card.  I used Jelly Roll pens to color the stars on the sentiment. This is a clean and simple-looking card and I enjoyed turning my mishap into a fun card! 

How do you save your bloopers?

Until next time!

Winnie, your card turned out so cute after your mishap! Fantastic idea to embellish the background with these stars. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! It's so cool that we both like TH and no, I have not tried the paints yet but would love to! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Just remember, in art there are no mistakes, just happy accidents (Bob Ross).:) It's beautiful, even if it's not what you meant to make.
