Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge June and Just Us Girls #297 Trend Week

Happy Friday everyone.

In between trying to do jobs in the garden I managed to make this card which fits in with the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge for June which is Sprays/Mists and also Just Us Girls #297 Trend Week Stacked Die Cuts.

I was playing with my new Ken Oliver Colour Bursts and it's quite amazing how much colour (as you will see from my card!!!) comes out in a puff of air..........!  I put my Memory Box stencil Texture Honey Comb on some watercolour card and sprayed water over before lifting it off.  I then "puffed" some colour over the w/c card and set it aside to dry.  I then die cut Memory Box Honey Blossom Spray from the coloured  w/c card and another four from white cardstock.  I glued all the die cuts together with the coloured one on top and inserted them back into the negative piece.  I then covered the blossom spray with Diamond Glaze.  Mounted onto a top fold card base.  The sentiment is SU Celebrate Today stamp set and punched out with a SU punch.  Not sure whether the light in my room wasn't very good but it looks much more dimensional IRL!!!

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend - the weather looks like it's going to be good.

Happy crafting.

NB  Just been to link up with the Just Us Girls challenge to find the link has been closed - ah well, never mind!
