TGIF Challenges 167 Follow Your Dreams

TGIF! Or maybe you have taken a long weekend after celebrating the 4th, that is IF you are in the USA. We had a great 4th of July, with a BBQ, homemade 25 foot slip and slide and of course ended the night with some fireworks and smores! I am not sure that it could have been any better!

Today I am designing with the TGIF Challenges design team! We have a bright and fun summer color combination for you all to play along with! I recently used this combo with the Lemon Zest stamp set. It was really hard to NOT use it again! I mean with hot summer days a nice glass of limeade or lemonade sure hits the spot! When my wheels began to turn I went in a WHOLE other direction!! Are you ready? Here is my card...

My card has fresh base of Grapefruit Grove with a nice bright matte of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock. I started to create my background with Water Color Paper and my Aqua Painters. I had all 3 ink pads on my work area and began with the Grapefruit Grove swoosh. After than I carried on with the other two colors Pineapple Punch and Lemon Lime Twist. While I liked my background it still needed some umph!  I added the Gold Stampin' Emboss splatters by using my Aqua Painter (you will want to use one you don't mind ruining) and watered down Liquid Multipurpose Glue. I kind of flicked it a few times and then added the powder. Of course my Heat Tool did the cool stuff! I also used Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on the center of the Dream Catcher from the Follow Your Dreams Bundle. I had die cut this twice and adhered them together using the Fine Tip Glue Pen before I had heat embossed it twice with the gold. This was set aside while I created a Feather stencil using our Window Sheets, the feather die from the bundle and the Shimmery White Embossing Paste! It was just the right touch of sparkle for this added texture. I stamped the Grapefruit Grove Dream Catcher, Lemon Lime Twist and Pineapple Punch Feathers to die cut them on my Big Shot using the Magnetic Platform. I scattered these about the card using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and of course had to adhere the Dream Catcher with Stampin' Dimensionals as well. To give this card one last Pop, I have added some Basic Adhesive Back sequins and Stampin' Emboss Gold heat embossed sentiment!
