Interesting Day!

Today was a day I should have stayed in bed and slept instead of card-making.  I love this image, but I had a heck of a time.  The image from Rick St. dennis is titled Carnevale Masque.  Twice my Copics decided to do that bloop thing, so there is a lot more green than I intended.  None of the gems would stay on the mask, even after I glued them on.  I see in my photograph, I lost another and the cats kept stealing my feathers. I give up! In the middle of working on the card I had a blood sugar crash and was coloring with shaking hands. Yes, I should have stopped and eaten, but I was determined to rescue this image and finish it.   I definitely will color this image again.  Hopefully, without all the pitfalls.  I am fond of it, though.  I'm glad I stuck with it.  What a day!
