Today's card was created for the CYCI color challenge. I love the bright and happy combo of white, yellow, and turquoise and had just picked up the perfect stamp set to combine with this happy trio. I started my card with a piece of canary yellow textured cardstock from the Ki 6x6 bright cardstock paper pad, textured it with dotted embossing folder from Lifestyle Krafts, and mounted it to my card base. I die cut a piece of Canson cold-press watercolor paper using a stitched edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and stamped the sentiment from Unity Stamp Company's Confetti Kindness using Versafine onyx black ink, covered it with some Zing clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. I got my watercolor panel good and wet and then covered it lightly with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in salty ocean for a nice wash. I dabbed a bit of extra color in the center just to darken it more and then heat set it. Once dry I misted the entire panel with Tsunkineko sheer shimmer mist for a pretty opalescent shine. I scattered a few sequins from The Ton and Pretty Pink Posh in canary yellow, turquoise, and marshmallow in 6mm and 4mm sizes and then mounted my panel up off of the card base using some 3M foam tape. I just love this stamp set and think I will have to make some card sets in various colors using it. It's a cute but true statement! Anyway, I hope you like it!
