Break Rules Like an Artist!

Hello friends! Do you like to break crafty rules!? I'm not much of a rule breaker in real life, but breaking ART rules is TOTALLY okay with me. Like when I want to stamp a bunch of crazy colors all over a card, and then leave my images black and white? Yes, please! 

I had fun with the Fun Stampers Journey Express Yourself stamp set (SS-0355) to create this card. I grabbed a couple of those paint streak stamps and covered my whole white card base with them, leaving a little space around the edges. Then I stamped the paint and accessories onto cardstock and trimmed them. I added a little Journey Glaze for some extra shine and dimension, and layered it all together with my stamped sentiment on a die cut oval. 
Are there crafty rules you like to break? Are you brave enough to try something new? Even if it seems scary, give it a shot. Need a starting place? Create a REALLY colorful card base , and then use simple black and white for the images and text. (And then come share it with me - because I'd love to see it!) Thanks so much for stopping by!!! xoxo

PS. Don't forget about the 2016 Be Brave Card Drive sponsored by Fun Stampers Journey! There's still time to share the love and craftiness!
