Stickles......Big Mistake!

Ok,here we go again,I loved making my other masked Snowflake card yesterday and experimented, masking a different area of my card and trying out a freebie,magazine giveaway stamp. It didn't look too bad but you know what I'm like, I just don't know when to leave be, so out came the stickles and I added a drizzle around my masked area. Why did I do this I ask myself,??? it even gives the appearance that my masked area is on the squiff :( ,I couldn't even take my blade to it as for once it dried almost instantly. So, I thought I'd share it with you anyway as a reminder to myself and a lesson to you all, Sometimes it's best to leave be! (excuse the photo, for some reason my diamante looks black)


I'm using this card for the following challenges,
 LIM,One layer, snow,
Addicted To Stamps 19,Snowflakes,
DVC22,Christmas,
QCCB25, Snowing.
Have a great week everyone,
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

I ma just the same Julie .. i made a card today and added glitter around the edge and i think it looks a right mess now! But i am sure in real life when the light hits and it sparkles it will look wonderful

Like the saying goes Julie... "Less is More"
Thank for showing us this card and giving your thoughts about it!
I often do something on a card at the last moment which I immediately regret!
Thanks so much

I think hun it is because the Stickles is thicker on the left hand top than it is on the right, which unbalances it slightly. You could always go over it to even it up. But I am sure that if you hadn't mentioned it, no one would have noticed! Still very pretty though. Hugs Sxx
