TOTALLY STAMPALICIOUS' "Gus Fishing" provided me with lots of fun this past week.  Here are some of the cards I made with that image.

I will post all the details on Splitcoast Stampers' Gallery some time this week.  My name there is carleneanne, or you could just search for Totally Stampalicious or Gus Fishing.

FYI...I am a firm believer that there are VERY FEW mistakes that can't be corrected in cardmaking.  I was adding the last of my Copic coloring to this image (and you know how long it takes to color and blend!) when this GIGANTIC blob of ink came out of the nib all over the fishing lure (see the lure in other pictures) and all over the background.  I tried over and over to erase it with my colorless blender to no avail.  Determined not to throw out all of my work, I decided to cut out the image and cut off the fishing lure.  Then, I just created a new background.

So, don't throw out mistakes...find a way to salvage your card!

This is just a close-up of Gus in his boat.

  1. What a way to fix all of your hard work! It always seems to happen right at the end of your project. Love all of the different fish you added to your projects. Fantastic coloring!
