MCT Sneaks Day 2


Hello! It's day 2 of sneaks for MyCreativeTime. Today we are sneaking a new set called You Matter. I made a quick watercolor background with bright new distress inks. Then I used a baby wipe and a stencil to lift color for the pattern. I let the greeting from You Matter be the star of the show by stamping it with black ink. I stamped a few stars as accents using the Hello Baby and Thanks For The Lift
