Just a Girl

Hi everyone,

Finally some time and inspiration for making a card:). It's time for Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. This time the challenge is to use a song title as the theme of our project. I think there are lots of great songs, but one of my favorite songs is Just a Girl by No Doubt. It represents a fun time in my live, rebelling against my parents and stuff. haha.
I've already played with coloring stamps with distress ink, but I'm just not very good at it (yet...). No reason to don't give it another try for this card! After all, I do need to practice ... I think it will be easier with the new Tim Holtz Distress markers, that he has announced on his blog! I would really like to have them all, but I have to save up first...

I used my stamp and cut methode again. My eCraft was giving me some problems, but I think I know why that was. I always use a cardstock stabilizer, but the one I was using was too thin and now I used a thinker one, and it worked fine again! Pfewww.
