Catch a Star

Good Morning and Welcome.
We enjoyed such a wonderful sunny, warm summer weekend here.
My card depicts the feeling of playing out in the garden in the summertime.

So onto my card details.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and placed my acrylic Rectangle Mask from A Colorful Life Designs over that. I just love how easy these masks are to use and no more taping or paper tearing.
Next, I inked up my acetate sheet with some Cracked Pistachio and some Broken China DOX inks, sprayed with water and pressed onto my white cardstock.  I repeated that process until I was happy with the coverage.
When that was all dry, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the flowers first, the girl and then the sentiment with some Blueprint DOX ink.  I clear heat embossed the girl to help make her pop and I also rubbed some ink along the bottom edge to help ground the flowers.  
I removed the mask and glued the piece onto some navy cardstock then onto a plain white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Awesome! Love the background and all the silhouettes! Being the same color, even the sentiment seems like a silhouette itself!! Thank you so much for joining us at the Seize the Birthday challenge!
