Painting problems-element overriding the other

Okay, here’s my problem. I drew a witch. In the next element there’s blood(red and black) coming out of her eyes for 12 or so frames. (Not quite as morbid as it sounds.) Before I painted it, the blood worked fine pouring down her face. Since I painted her face green, that’s taken over and blocked out my blood. When I click on the exposure of the blood it shows it still happening. But playback blocks it out until it comes outside of her face. How do I keep it in there. Its one of my best scenes. Thanks. matt
