Be Good To Yourself!

Hello! It's "Thoughtful Thursday" over at MyCreativeTime. I had tons of messy fun making this card. ;) I started by cutting a bunch of clouds with the Stitched Cartoon Clouds Dies to make masks for my background. I stuck the cloud masks down and sprayed Peacock Feathers distress ink {mixed with water in a mini mister} over them. Then I laid a Heidi Swapp mask over that and sprayed with gold Heidi Swapp color shine. The result of that was a very subtle pattern...
See that pattern? No? It's there. Promise. ;) Anyhoo, I peeled up the cloud masks and flicked on some more inks to messy it up a bit. I used the new Stitched Party Dies to cut the banners. I inked them up with gold distress stain and then sprayed over that with the Heidi Swapp gold color shine mist. I also added some antique linen distress stickles to every other flag on the banners. I stamped the greeting from the new Girls Night Out set with Ranger archival jet black ink. I finished it off with some sequins.

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more projects. I hope you have a great day!
