Mojo Charlotte


Man, I had a hard time coloring this one again. I swear, I'm doing something wrong with digi images. Seems like it's just me who can't get the ink not to smear. I heat set it, but maybe I didn't do that long enough. I really need some tips on this! I couldn't get the face how I liked, no matter what I tried. Ink kept smearing, seems like I need to get refills for a few copics on top of that. But the card is done for the Relay at The Greeting Farm. I tried to follow the Mojo Monday sketch, but I think it was for a square card after I got done making it. So, it's not a perfect match on that challenge. I added shimmerz to her eyes, and used my new Sharpie pen that my good friend, Kim, sent me. That sucker is cool! I didn't add a sentiment yet, because I'm not sure what I'll use this for just yet.

On top of all that, I discovered my hot water heater is leaking, so I've got one on it's way to get put in today. How swell is that?! I'm saying, Jan isn't a good month for me! Is it almost Feb?! It is! Which is good, because Lost comes on soon! Something to cheer me up!

Supplies: basic Grey, so saffron, copics, nesties.

love your card - I have put clear embossing powder on the digi images strait from the printer then heat emboss. It seemed to help. I read this somewhere - LOL -so I can't take credit for it.

LOVE it Anna!!!! Have you tried just coloring up to the ink line and not crossing over it? Sometimes that helps me. Good luck with the water heater!
