SHOPPING OUR STASH #216 - Splish Splash!

Hiya crafty peeps! It's Tuesday, which means a new challenge starts at SHOPPING OUR STASH! We are calling this one Splish Splash, and we'd like you to use some kind of wet medium on your project. (ex. water color, acrylic paint, distress inks, etc.) Since water coloring is a big trend right now, this should be easy peasy for many of you. ☺ Here's the card I made:

 Here is the inside of my card:

I can't take credit for this card, as I pretty much CASEd this incredible card made by Heather Pulvirenti. (Thank you Heather, for the inspiration!) I die cut a pierced border panel from water color paper, then stamped and heat embossed the flowers/leaves using white embossing powder. After that, I just went to town using different Distress Inks. I stamped and heat embossed the banner and sentiment onto black card stock, again with white embossing powder, fussy cut, and adhered with foam squares. Some clear sequins were added for some shine. On the inside, I inked the word celebrate in spiced marmalade, then just the bottom in abandoned coral before stamping on the card stock panel. Added the bottom sentiment and was done!

Now it's your turn to make a splash! Just link up your project at Shopping Our Stash! While there, please check out the amazing talent of my teammates and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for hanging out with me. I hope you have a great day!
