A Little Bit of Gossip - Sugar Nellie DT

Oh my goodness... see that innocent looking die cut ladybird?  Or specifically the little black spots on the ladybird?  You would not believe the MESS those little spots caused!  I decided to add them with a pearl pen, but the nozzle was blocked... had a bit of a poke around and couldn't clear it so thicko here squeezed hard... BIG mistake!  The nozzle popped off the end and black pearl stuff sprayed and splattered everywhere - my face was a mass of little black splats, it was all over my hair, my clothes, the desk, and all over my finished card... sob!  So those little 'random' white pearls have been added to cover up the black ones.  I'm still picking lumps of black stuff out of my hair lol.

Gorgeous Lisa and I'm sure no-one would know about your pearly disaster. I had a similar accident with glue once. Squeezed it too hard and my favourite work cardigan was ruined!
