Just Because You're Amazing!

You are, you know.  You.  Are.  Amazing.  And don't you forget that, either!  I am, too.  Just sayin'.  ;)


This is the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World this week. It's the Pattern Play Tuesday Trigger, folks. Ummm... HARD!!!! No... like, for reallies... this one was a difficult one for me. BUT...what's a challenge if you aren't challenged, right? Right. So, I decided to tackle this sucker. It helped that my March Simon Says Stamp Card Kit happened to arrive at JUST the right time... like the day before I made the card. HA!

Just Because You're Amazing

I LOVED the gorgeous Flower Friend stamp set that came in the kit and decided to pull out a bunch of my brightly colored Clearsnap inks to attempt to create one of those nifty patterns folks are doing these days. (HA! That totally sounds like old lady talk! LOVE IT!)

Just Because You're Amazing (detail)

K... so ... a couple of things I learned on this first shot at creating such a design... pencil lines probably would have been a good thing. I can't tell you for certain, as I neglected to use them and totally freehanded this sucker! Secondly...this is HARD! I'm extra uber impressed now (okay, so I've always been impressed by Betsy, but even MORE now!) with the amazing Betsy Veldman for her designs. She's a rock star. Just sayin'.

I did have fun, though. Lots of it! And I kind of like the result. I can't say I'll be using this technique every time I stamp, but I'd be willing to give it another go now and then. Thanks for the challenge, Cath! Accepted and delivered!

Have a Happy ... and remember... You. Are. Amazing!

Jingle Out!
