Fixing a Stamp Goof

Nancie Waterman's Artwork

This is a simple card that I made today for the upcoming “Gelatos, Gel-Sticks & Stamps” eArticle. I’ll tell you how I made it in the eArticle itself. I wanted to share it because I made a goof on it and had to fix it . . . and although it would not have dawned on me to make the change required by the fix, I think it was just the touch that the card needed. (Don’t you love it when things work out that way?) Can you find the goof?

When I stamped the text on the card, I tilted the stamp just a tiny bit downward and got a wavy edge mark beneath part of the text. To fix it, I used a black Pitt Artist pen and extended the wavy line so it underlined the text. Then I drew another one right below it. I like it!

Have you ever fixed a goof and found that you liked the result so much that you were glad you made the mistake?
