Bright and Bold!

Greetings YNS Fans!  Today brings a new challenge over at the YNS SCS Forum and Blog!  This week we are providing you a fabulous sketch for inspiration!
Here is my interpretation using Safari Snap Shot, Skateboard Dude, and Sleepover Party
Using watercolor paper, I lined my individual stamps onto my Fiskars Stamp Press and inked them with Versamark.  I then coated them with white embossing powder and heat set the entire panel.  I then took my Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade and sponged both halves of the panel and then generously sprayed it with pearlized water and let it dry by itself.  When I use my heat tool to quick dry pieces like this the color moves as I want it to but this time I wanted to see how it would dry if I just let it be and I LOVE the results.
Super shiny, super bright and a bit tie-dye as well!  I backed it with some fabulous aqua cardstock from Bazzill and backed it with some awesome papers from Amy Tangerine and Basic Grey for the little squares.  The entire main panel is anchored with mini silver brads.

I hope you come join us at the YNS Blog or Forum over at SCS!!

Crafty Hugs!
