You are always in my Heart!

Hi friends,

What a gorgeous day out there today!!  I wanted to try something new with my copics today and learned a lot of lessons that I will share with after I show you my card.

I wanted to emboss my stamp on neenah cardstock in black and then emboss the sentiment in red and when I took the gun to heat the image it started to dry out the stamp I already embossed.  Some of the letters in the center didn't get a lot of embossing powder so I thought I could use my copic to fix it and it bled outside the lines.  I coloured the stripes on the frame and the colour started to bleed under the embossing.  Yikes! Lots of lessons today, but it still turned out alright.  The problem is I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I may have to try and fix it at some point!  I'm sure none of you out there are 'cut from the same cloth' as me so to speak! lol

I hope you can learn from some of my mistakes and if anyone out there has insight on how to make it work, please leave a comment for me! Thanks for stopping by!
