"The funny thing is she wasn't even planning any of this. It all just sort of happened, and *boy howdy* was she glad it did."
Don't you just love that? How often do we find ourselves in happy, but unexpected circumstances? Let's all learn to appreciate it when it happens....too much life is spent in strife...y'know?
I wanted to highlight this great Technique Junkie Stamp sentiment (Boy Howdy SD#432) by keeping the focus on it, but using a background technique to add some spice to the card. I chose the Peace Background stamp and the technique called Patchwork Distress. It's the online bonus technique for the June/July 2014 edition of the newsletter. It's a great technique and fun way to add extra color and interest!
I'm a big fan of details and always get a kick out of making my own to tie a project completely together. Using several inks, I stamped portions of the background stamp images and trimmed them. I added a layer of crystal lacquer for some dimension. When dried, I had three fun little coordinating buttons to add to my project!
