Long time coming or ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!

I had my card nearly finished when I saw smudges around my main image! How did that happen? So, I tried my technique, I meant to do that! I should have remembered the technique, never try to fix it! lol It got worse and worse until I had to throw it in the trash and start over. That's where the arghhhhhh comes in.

So, I stamped the image with black craft ink and clear embossed. I watercolored with markers scribbled onto my stamp a ma jig mat and a watercolor brush. A lousy water color brush I might add! I haven't found my good ones since the move. For all the handicaps I had this morning, I think it turned out pretty well.

I am trying ribbon treatments that have less bulk so I can afford to mail these things. lol This ribbon is just looped a few times. I think it works. What do you think?

Stamps are by Treehouse!
