Wishing You Everything Good

Edited on 2/8/2019I can't believe this card won the following awards.
 Oh my, this is indeed fourfold happiness and excitements. Thanks for all the talented DTs, you made my day again.

Hi Artsy Friends,

Direct marker coloring and heat embossing are the very techniques that I learned when I first entered the stamping world. The floral and text stamps are old Hero Arts stamps. The subtle Aida Cloth background is an old Stampin’ Up stamp. Hmm, this card made me feel going back to basics and nostalgia even though the colors are bright. Hope this CAS card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

I am glad that this tag was chosen as a Winner by More Mixed Media Challenge.

Hi Stamping Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The September Challenge Theme is MESSY.
For more details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

Honestly speaking, I am not sure what MESSY really means. It’s dumb, I know. Ha! I thought something dark, dirty or muddy might qualify as MESSY and this tag is what I came up with. For me, this is really a challenge because I tend to use pretty and bright color schemes. I'm delighted that I challenged myself to go beyond my comfort zone. Hope this tag with galaxy background is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.
