Dancing through life...

The title has absolutely nothing to do with the card. It's just the wicked song that's running through my head right now...Life's less painless for the brainless... If you haven't seen the play I recommend you do so right now.

Oh the card. I finally got my PTI retro backgrounds stamp set. I've been pining for it for months now. But its been bad luck with being sold out or I've already got too much in my cart. But I finally got it for my christmas bonus whatever. I had this idea to do a gradient type rainbow effect w/ the floralish print. But I chickened out and only tried it with a bunch of blue copics first.

Then I tried to do the plaid background I've been seeing so much of. I'm really into this blue & yellow look, so I pulled out my lemon tart (which is so fabby dabby) and tried my hand at some plaidish backgrounds. Then I did that Nichole Heady trick where she puts down scor-it tape and tops it off w/ glitter. I didnt have scor-it tape, so I used some regular two way craft tape. I'm not sure if all craft tape is created equally as this one seemed to have a heavy sheen that even the glitter couldnt cover up. Then I topped it off w/ a senti from another PTI set I've been drooling over and only just bought, Signature Greetings.

Later I'll have a PTI card that I used five sets on. Wowzas...
