This card was an accident. I had an idea in my head when I stamped and heat embossed the rays, but when I tried to sponge some colour it all went pear shaped.

Mood Board

I set it aside for a while and went on to play with some colorburst powders and having some left over on the mat decided I had nothing to lose by dabbing this piece into the colour. Kind of liked it so I added some green and some purple to my mat and dabbed the piece into those as well. In polishing off the excess from the rays I accidentally picked up a damp cloth and without thinking used it. When I saw what happened I continued to use the damp cloth as it spread the colour in streaks and I liked how it looked. When dry I mounted it onto the yellow layer and then onto card front. Decided it needed something but had to be simple so I used the daisy stamp from a GKD set on some vellum, heat embossed it white and then fussy cut . Added a bit of green to the stems and then glued over the top of the layers. Am I learning from Bonnie or what? Added the sentiment to the top corner and declared it complete.

  1. Thanks – I agree with you, I’ve had several happy accidents recently. It the reason I don’t throw away anything unless I’m absolutely sure it isn’t redeemable.


  2. This is one of the scrap pieces. I almost threw it out and then wondered what would happen if I swiped it through the left over ink. My surprise was huge.
