I didn't want to leave you hanging, lol.
And I didn't want to highjack Daniel's post.

Here is the card I did where the marker fell on her face, lol.
And here is how I fixed it.

LOL, Tracy! I wouldn't have minded you posting this on the thread, but so glad you did a separate thread since it's a good topic--fixing 'flaws'.

Although your 'flaw' is barely noticeable to me, I love your 'fix'. Not only ingenious, but also (as you say) even 'better' than the original design.

It might be fun to use this thread as a way to share our common 'oops' & ways to do 'fixes'--rather than ditching the original altogether. Whattaya think?

BTW? I LOL'd a lot over the 'dermatologist' comment. TFS!

LOL!! That is great Tracy! Thank you for showing me (and everyone else) your "accident".

I like both images!---I like how you showed her as a Marilyn Manroe look. LOL! And I think it worked too! But I think the solution you came up with is cool too! Neat 3D effect! There is one blog I read last month where the blogger does all her stamped images like you did----stamps them, colors them, fussy cuts them apart, then rebuilds them into more of a 3D image and kinda rounds the edges of the cut outs to add to the 3D-ness.

Thank you for sharing and I love the way your card turned out! So pretty and happy!

Thanks for sharing! I also like both versions of the little girl. The second really does add dimension and interest right to her face.

I have done something similar where I didn't shut my stamp pad and then it dropped and fell right on a card I had just completed. It was such a big mess I think I scrapped it and redid it.

I have left small smudges before, but not big ones. I hope to see more ideas on how to fix mistakes

What a great and creative solution to that 'flaw'.

Maybe you can start a series of cards with popped up features like that. Of course this time you wouldn't have to spend the time colouring her whole 'underneath' face so carefully first.

Thank you for your nice comments
I usually try and fix any flaws that I do, as I like to use everything I make. I hate to waste.

I would love to hear what everyone else does to fix the "oops" we all do.
I know if I stamp a sentiment directly on a card or project and it isn't stamped clear. I will re stamp it on a separate piece of paper, mat it and adhere it over original sentiment.
I am sure most of us do that one though

Tracy, yes I do that for sentiments, but my "go-to" is the flag, not the matted sentiment! lol

This came out really cute! I love the 3d effect on the second image.

I am always wondering how to fix oopsies. LOL. I make lots of them in my stamping. Little ink spots or smooshing the sentiment into the ink too much and getting lines where they shouldn't be or filling in the o's.

I will be watching this thread for fixes, hehehe.

Great fix Tracy. I probably wouldn't have noticed the "flaw" in the first one and how you fixed it was ingenious. Popping up the head really added a realism to the image.


Happy Stamping and Creating

Some ways I "fix" flaws is:

(I do this one too) matting a sentiment to go over original sentiment,

fussy cutting image to cut out mistake,

adding an embellishment over the flaw,

I have black ink pens in different tips sizes and if I have a sentiment (for example) that didn't completely stamp out, I'll use the ink pen tip size closest to the line thickness of the stamped sentiment to fill in those blank spots so I do not have to restamp the sentiment or image,

add glitter or colored glue over the flaw (I suppose, you could use paint the same way).

Thank you for all you nice comments about my flawed and unflawed image

Great "flaw" tips Melissa
I do the embellishment over the ink blob as well

Actually I have a ton of flaw tips, not that I can think of any off the top of my head...now it sounds like all I do is screw up my crafts, lol.
