You're the Best!

I never know how a card is going to get started.  Sometimes it's an image that sparks my Muse.  Other times, it's a new die I want to play with.  Frequently it's a color that winds me up, and that was the case for this card.  I reached for the lime cardstock and galloped on from there . . .

The background on this is another example of the plastic wrap technique.  This involves  adding a few drops of reinkers to some plastic wrap, misting heavily to distribute, and then laying a piece of misted cardstock down on it.  The wrap and cardstock are turned over and then the plastic gets mooshed around and wrinkled in order to concentrate the colors.  After it's completely dry, the wrap is removed and the result is an artsy, mottled, marbled background that looks like a lot more skill is involved than was actually the case.   Love that . . .
