Making Lemonade

When Life Gets Sour.... Sweeten it with Love (inside of card).   That is what Tilda says.   Well I did my best.  I have a bit of a "sour" experience coloring this card the first time.   When I was coloring Tilda's skin, my E13 marker spit a large blob on ink.  YUCK!  Well.... I refused to give up.  I decided to make lemonade so to speak.  I just darkened everything up and did my best to clean it all up.    

I think it turned out okay... but I really wanted to give it another try.  Thankfully my second time around my markers behaved themselves.  I think it turned out much better, but both are acceptable.  

I'd love to hear your stories.  How did you save the day from your blobs? What do you think? Was I successful. 

Can you spot my marker blob?
