Post 137: You're My Type of Friend Card

Hi folks!!

Today I'd like to share a blooper card. I must admit it is difficult sharing the projects that have gone wrong or the ones that one doesn't feel particularly proud about but in the past few months I have realized that it's ok to share anything and everything one makes, especially when the process of making has given one so much joy :) and the mistakes certainly add to one's experience. 

The blooper project I had originally saved for the occasion is lost somewhere in my crafty space but I remember keeping this current one on the side as well. The blooper on this was that I wanted to make a clean and simple card with lots of white space and I accidentally spilled some pink ink on the card, so to rectify the situation I ended up adding a few pink hearts and also splatters of pink (I went overboard with the splatters as well!!) but today when I look at it, honestly, it doesn't seem too bad, so I didn't toss it. It actually got used. The Never-Before-Used supplies used on this one are a batch of cardstock I bought in destash and hadn't used at all and the hotp typewriter stamp. Just in case you can't make out the sentiment, it says "you're my type of friend!" The stamping was done with archival jet black and magenta hue inks , the splatters and the grey grounding was with zig markers and an aqua brush. 

Here is a picture of the card:-

Thanks for your time! Would love to read your comments

  1. I think it looks pretty cool and I know often when I accidentally get some drops of color or smudges on a design I try to add more to make them think it is my artistic flair doing this. LOL

  2. It turned out very artsy, Preeti! Not only is fun to share our bloopers, but we know we can always send them to one of our bloggie friends who will understand from personal experience! Thank you so much for being a good sport and sharing with us in the Boo-Boo Hop and in my NBUS Challenge #11! Hugs, Darnell

  3. LOVE this, as Darnell said very artsy, the pink works perfectly.
