Epic Celebrations & Happy Accidents

If you watched my Lunchtime Crafting video on my Facebook Page yesterday, you saw me create this card (and a few alternatives) from the Epic Celebrations set (one you can choose FREE with qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration~ until March 31, 2018):

It’s a super easy technique called “Reverse Masking” and the colors were suggested on the #gdp125 color challenge:

I love coloring Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with Aqua Painters and ink refills to match any project!
