Wonderful Mistake!

This card started off being something totally different.   I have been playing with my Distress inks and markers this past week making backgrounds.   I love watching Kristina Werner's blog and You Tube channel and got on a kick with the Distress inks.    I was trying to make the background pink, yellow and orange but it just was not working.   I used my markers to put ink on the water color paper and when I added water the marker lines were still showing.   I gave up on it and left it alone for a couple of days and then sprayed it with water again.   I kept adding ink and water and used my heat gun to dry in between.    It still did not look just write so I laid my Simon Says Medium Dot Stencil and blotted water on top.   It added just a subtle effect.   Then I splattered it with some Heidi Swap Gold Color Shine.    I really loved how it turned out.

Here are some close ups to see the gold shine added.

Just goes to show, don't throw away your mistakes.   You may be able to give it a fresh look or use it in a different way!
