One never knows

One never knows, when in the creative process, how an image will turn out.  This was one of the practice images I colored using copics.  I had these papers from GinaK Designs that I am trying to use up.  (pssst….her kits are a really great deal) you get a lot of stuff.  I have made so many cards from this kit and still have papers left.   All the papers on here are from her kit.  After putting it all together I didn’t like the empty space at the top.  I was tired last night and just couldn’t think what to add to it.  This morning I was going to add some Pearl Pen drops and oops I forgot to do a test squeeze and I ended up with a pearl the size of a large pea.  I didn’t like the way it looked so I scraped it off but it left a blob….hmmmm….Aha Washi tape to the rescue.  I thought I was finished but then I kept looking at it.  I took a picture of it, it was complete.  But this afternoon I was going through a drawer and sorting and I found these black shiny dots, (joann fabrics. $1.00 rack) they look perfect on here and just finish it.  I am posting both cards again so you can see what “taking it up a notch” does.  Thanks for looking.
