Coloring of a Different Sort

I have this digi stamp Brooksie Book Nerd by Sherri Baldy. Take a look at Brooksie and you will notice my image isn't quite right. No, Sherri didn't mess up and send me the wrong one, I messed up coloring her. It is one of those cases of what to do when you can't really see the lines and what lines you can see, you can't stay in. My hands tend to shake and sometimes my hand/arm will jump or twitch. As you can imagine this is not something you want happening trying to color an image. Since I put so much time in her doing her, I didn't want to throw her away so  I just fake it!

I couldn't see her hair and the braid (Is that a braid?). Is she wearing some sort of babushka? Is that her hair? Well, I wasn't sure and since I messed up her hair anyways, I played the stylist and just gave her a new hair do.

Her dress is suppose to be striped at the top. Yep, I messed that up too. No problem, if I can be a stylist then being a clothing designer should be a breeze. I  just colored it all Violet Blue and then cover with matching Stickles.

I apologize for the terrible photo. I was trying to capture the Stickles on her top and ruffles and didn't notice the light washed out the whole right side of the card.

Inside: I missed your Birthday!

FYI: The pile of books are not part of this stamp, that digi came from Bee Crafty but thought it went perfect here. 

Although I messed up this image totally trying to color it, I did end up with a cute image that I was able to enter in the Fiskateer Lace Challenge plus I really need this card. (I did forget someone's birthday.)

So before you ever throw an image away because you messed up coloring it, maybe take a good look at it and see if there is something you can do or use to salvage the image.
