CAS(E) this Sketch #113, Colour Me #61 & Addicted to Stamps & More #134

Oh my, what a fiasco trying to get this card done.  I have never had any trouble with smearing Versafine, Onyx Black Ink until Colleen and I heard it on a couple of videos this week saying it is pigment ink.  Well, I sure found out with this card.  It took me about 2-1/2 to 3 hours to complete this because I kept getting splotches of black ink on the white.  It was on a sheet that I had masked off the oval and sponged it but I had to cut the oval out and start over again. just insetting the oval.  I was not about to sponge this over again.  Then I forgot the sentiment and had already popped it up so tried with the Misti in case I needed to re-stamp, but there were a couple of hollow spots so we added more pop up tape and that worked but then when I took it out somehow there was more black on the white so that is when I cut it out and inset it.  Whew what a time!!!!!
