Today's card was a disaster from start to finish!
Firstly, the stamping of John Lockwood's stamp wasn't perfect, I'd forgotten to dust the card with an anti-static bag. So there's bits of embossing powder in places where there shouldn't be. There were gaps too (my fault), circular sentiments needed to hide those mistakes.
I wanted to use CS pva pearl dots on some of the circles. I opened the white and the nozzle was stuck in the lid. Most of the pva ended up on my black trousers! I cleaned it all up, and proceeded to do the dots. Job done I thought, and then noticed that there were a couple of spaces that I'd missed. I carefully took the lid off the white pot again for it to happen once more, this time a large blob landed on the card. I tried to scrape it off carefully, but the fibres of the card started to break. I was a bit angry by now and was prepared to throw it in the bin. But, I decided to spray the rest of the card base with water and rub gently to break the fibres and therefore create a uniform looking card base. It sort of worked! Hey ho, it's only a piece of card
