It looked good on paper...


I made a card for Carla's Sketch Challenge. My layout for my card looked good on paper. All I had to do was cut and measure the card stock and stamp my images. The pieces of the puzzle were falling into place and I was pleased with the outcome. Then I got this BIG Idea, why not make the lady bug wings have a gloss...you know like the real thing! I applied some WET LOOKS to the wings and the flowers and let it dry a few hours. I was not happy with the effect at all! I liked the glass sheen but I didn't like the lumpy finish. I wonder if I used too much? In the end this is what I have to offer. Thank you for stopping by:)

It looks good when I make the pic bigger too...so whats wrong with it? I luv the the red, white & black combo! It doesn't look lumpy in the pic, but only you know for sure.
