MCT May Release Sneak Peek ~ you are special!




 Well it's time again to share with you the My Creative Time May Release Sneak Peeks!!!  I thought it would never get here...we went a week later than usual, however it felt like FOREVER!!!!!  

Today we are "sneaking" Speech Bubble Sentiments w/die set, Bunch of fun circles, and Build a Scripty & Watercolor background!  You are going to love this new release and all the fun elements to make cards, layouts, and such!  If fact as I'm writing this I just visualized another project! 

For today's project I went with a CAS design...well as CAS as I am able to create!  lol! 
I used Tim Holtz distress ink for the background stamp to give it even a more weathered look.  




I used Stazon ink for the clear cardstock window.  


Since I've been playing with watercolors lately, I had to make another card just for fun.  I used Pretty Spring Wreath Stamp Set with Tim Holtz distress inks to create this watercolor effect.  I'm still not great at the stamping with the sides of a stamp.  The only way I can explain it is, to use the stamp like a paint brush.  Dabbing here and there.  But it's sooo fun to play and experiment with different looks!  I love how striking the black "you are amazing" die cut and stamp look on the the bright colors.


I added Wink of Stella shimmer to the flowers which didn't photograph well.
