CTD 360

Hey Friends, I was so inspired by the Colors in this week's Color Throwdown 360 because I've been wanting to use Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks in a watercolor background for months. I have seen others use these colors and I adore them together.

 I am super pleased at how the background came out. I just painted water on Strathmore Water Color paper and dropped the ink colors on with my brush. ( I had smooshed them on to a craft mat and spray it with water.) I let the water spread the colors around and only helped it a little bit and air dried it. 
Then I copic-colored the ADORABLE ghosts from the new Lawn Fawn Booyah set and fussy cut them out. I stamped a tree from Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather set in back on SSS Fog CS and die cut it. 

I them set about making a shaker card with my new to me LF Stitched Square dies. I used them to cut the black fun foam too that I used to pop up the frame. 

Then the  pièce de ré·sis·tance was to add the bat sequins from Recollections, So Fun!!!!

A sentiment was heat embossed as well. This card was a labor of love, to say the least. 

Sweet Stampin -Emboss it. I embossed my sentiment.
