We All Make Mistakes

Sometimes when stamping larger images it’s easy to miss a spot, either when inking your stamp or pressing it on the paper. Rather than throwing that image away I have a couple ideas on how to save it. The first technique uses die-cut pieces to hide a replaced portion of the stamped image. But why stop there? Instead of hiding the mistake why not highlight it? We’ll do just that very thing with my Image Fix #2.

Directions for Image Fix #1

Stamp desired image….darn, I missed a spot – the face of the large elephant didn’t stamp properly.

Re-stamp your image on a scrap piece of cardstock. Use a die cut to cut the image out.

Cut a second frame in a coordinating cardstock to hide the seam.

Finish the card as desired. I implemented more die-cut pieces and frames to make the needed one seem like I totally planned it the whole time!

Directions for Image Fix #2

Stamp desired image on cardstock, in this example Black Shimmer Delicata Pigment Ink was used….darn, I missed a spot and I didn’t let the ink dry before touching and smudged an area in the moon.

Pull out a desired die(s) and position it over the messed up area(s). Use a bit of washi tape to secure the die in place; run the image through die-cut machine and removed the stamping mistake(s).

Here is where this technique goes from hiding a mistake to highlighting the mistake. Instead of stamping the replacement image on green cardstock, stamp the image on black cardstock using White Shimmer and Celestial Copper Delicata Inks. Run the new portion of the image through the die cut machine.

Mount the image panel onto a black mat which was stamped with Celestial Copper and a script stamp.
