I haven't used the SSS Kaleidoscope Background stamp very much, but I really love the design. For this card I gold embossed the image & colored with Ocean Blue & Mint Green Liquid Pearls, adding just a bit of water. The metallic sheen is gorgeous in person. I die cut a square window in a black panel & gold embossed the sentiment from SSS Thoughtful Messages. I'm entering SSS Flickr #117 & Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.
Next is my entry for W&W 5th Birthday Bash Layering Die Cuts. I used watercolor paper & stamped images from W&W In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers using Distress Inks mowed lawn, lucky clover & twisted citron. Then I added water with a brush & restamped until I liked the look. For fun, a white gel pen was used to add little details. The same inks were used for splatters & I lightly distressed the edges. In a Word: Hello was die cut from a smooshed panel done in the same colors. I discovered you can add color with a damp brush to make the smooshing deeper colors. I used a white shadow stacked 5 high. The word layered on top from The Big, the Bold & Seasons was stacked 3 high, brushed with shimmer & covered with Nuvo Glaze. I matted the panel with a light gray cardstock & added Wedding dress Pico Embellisher drops. I'm also entering Allsorts & WAW.
