Because You're You. I'm Me. We're We.

Hi friends,
I was playing around with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and ended up creating this card:
 I used the Flutter By stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I masked & heat embossed the images in white embossing powder (Hero Arts) and used my Zigs to do some simple watercoloring on Bristol smooth paper. I used some Holographic embossing powder (ranger) on the "because" and I wish I had used my Misti so I could have double stamped it to make it super holographic :(

Here's a closer peek, but of course, it doesn't look as cool as it does in person.
   I stamped the sentiment in three colors and I used the Misti for that. But as I was masking the stamp, I forgot to remove the washi tape I was using to cover up the other parts & stamped it. AAAGH!!! I made a blob on my just-about-finished card!!! So what did I do? Added some splatters to try to camouflage it *Ü* The sentiment is from the Because You stamp set (MFT). Last I added a few Sparkling clear sequins (PPP).

I never get a chance just to "play" since I'm always busy with work and my boys and things. So for me, if I get a chance to get crafty, it is for the purpose of creating a card that I need to give to someone, not just for experimentation or exploration. So being on vacation, it's nice to be able to play, and explore, and end up making a card with it *Ü*

Thanks for popping in today!
Until next time...tootles,
