Challenge with A Happy Mistake!!

Oh Yes, I Did a Card...Hooray me!!!...
Well my card started out simple and plain and a mistake turned 
into a Happy mistake. It's so COOOL!!!
As I did my masking to ink in my squares with just the right colors to match some scrap papers I had left from the Wings paper pack, I spotted my last wooden butterfly and thought, "I'll use it and rub ink on to it as well."
I add my papers & ribbon, then I decide the butterfly is too plain. So I decided to make it shiny by adding liquid glass to it. All was going well and looked fine. But, I am impatient today and thought....Lets heat it up and dry it faster.... Well, that process was going real well. I had the lowest setting and was just letting it take it's time, waving the heat gun around. no bubbles or other problems. Began talking to daughter, needless to say, I wasn't paying attention and I let it get too hot...
....OHOOOO NO!!! a huge bubble and not just one but two huge 
blow up looking bubbles (if you can imagine that in your head-looked like someone 
was blowing a blue green bubble).
I took the heat away..bubbles went down, but now there was a strange look to it...I thought, well it's ruined let's see what happens when I heat it more....Big bubbles are back..kinda neat lookin' and now' it's funny. As I am playin' with this butterfly bubble and I have let the bubbles subside and cool...WOW It looks cool. So I have used my mishap as a center point on my card.  Hope you like.

Inside sentiment is Thinking of You!

Love your happy mistake experience!!!! The absolute exact thing happened to me the other day!! I didn't play with the bubbles though, I just added more liquid glass to try to even things out... Next time I think I'll play to get that textured look!

What a delightful story and such a pretty card. I remember something similar happened when my granddaughter was embossing something. We both laughed are heads off. Is liquid glass the name of the product you used? I've never heard of it before. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment;)
