Being unique is better than being perfect

Wednesday July 5, 2017
 
 
Hope you all in the USA had a great safe 4th of July.
 We don't do anything on the 4th of July. Living in the country and logging community there are all sorts of fireworks and illegal ones for sure.. So we just calm the 4 legged kids and tough it out. Wouldn't bother me if the stopped it and only had the fireworks at controlled areas.
So playing I was making a background and thought looks like Halloween colors... so
 I don't really do Halloween but love the colors. Well at least what I think are the colors of Halloween..
 
I chose a stamp set from Simon Says that has different size circles. I took out various inks and just stamped all over the card with different size circles and then took a outline only circle and did the little gold rings. I then stamped Tim Holtz crazy birds and the broom, hat and pumpkin and embossed in black. I colored them with Zig markers and used Spectrum Noir glitter pen on the eyes. I layered them on the card and stamped the sentiment from Tech. Tues.
