Second Print

This card is for the children in a domestic violence situation.

In my Childhood post, I told you I had gotten a second print. If you look closely, you will see the tribal swirsl in a very light print. I absolutely loved the print as a background and did not want to cover much of it up. I stamped and embossed the image. OOPS, I have a "smears" to you.  That is what my sister Julie and I call our goofs!  It looks like the boy is playing with a ball but that is a smears I made. Since it looked like a ball, I left it. See, there are really no mistakes when you are crafting!!

  1. really? Who knew it was a smudge it just looks like he is throwing a ball in the water! I agree so many mistakes but I can always find a way to cover it up and make it beautiful again. And now that I said that out loud, I realize that's what I did for years and only a hand full of people knew wHat was happening behind closed doors.

  2. Hi Jerrie, great card. Love the smears to you. What a lark. Hugz

  3. I like when a second card can be made with the technique from the first card - this one is beautiful too! Your smears were just a happy accident!

  4. Yes Jerrie it does look like the kids are playing with a ball...your card is so lovely and I think perfect for the theme
