Colorful Journey


I may not work outside the house, but I've never been so happy it's Friday!  Chalking up another "eventful" week here --- 4 days to get a new water heart installed (just plain stupid); car still in repair shop until next week; and this morning while washing my face, heard a "drip" --- pipe leaking under sink and then my bank called to say my business debit card is one of those in the most recent compromised ordeal!  hahahaha  In the wise words of Simba on The Lion King --- "I laugh in the face of danger" or rather in this case, in the face of life's mishaps!

But tonight is going to be a FUN night and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy it!  Going out to dinner and a Hurricanes hockey game with the Hubs and the youngest, Ben!

But before I go, here is a card I've neglected to post (I have more that will be neglected until after the game)!

I tried out the "shaving cream technique" that is the challenge over at Technique Time Tuesday this week.   It was a lot of fun and I got a lot of cool background papers out of it!  If you want to see how to do it here is their tutorial.

I thought it would be great to pair with the colorful challenge at Less Is More.

STAMPS: Sentiment - (Fiskars).
PAPER: Glossy specialty cardstock; purple cardstock.
INK: Dylusions Ink
EXTRAS: Shaving cream, ruler, paint brush, ribbon die cut, sequins, heart die (Sizzix Framelit).


So check out that shaving cream technique, it's really cool!

Rainbow Blessings!

This is great! I love how you used so many colors and ended up with a beautiful rainbow! When I tried a lot of colors it ended up looking like baby poo! :( lol How DID you manage to keep the colors looking so beautiful??? Thanks for playing at TTT with us. :)
