Bright Cheers!

Hello and Happy Good Friday to you all. Today it's my day to post over on the Make The Day Special Blog. I'm sharing with you a pretty bright card using Avery Elles 'Cheers' stamp set.

For the sentiment panel I used the bleed technique that Jennifer McGuire did HERE by inking up my stamp using three different Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry). I then dropped water sploches over it, waited for it to dry and then over stamped it using Archival Black ink. 

For the background panel I have used Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry. I used the mini blending tools like Jennifer McGuire did HERE. I then added some water drops to it to add some texture. 

I then wanted to add a bit more of a bubbly texture to the background so I took the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp but placed it so the bubbles were 'falling' to the right. I used clear embossing paste just to add the bubbly effect. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Hugs Lydia xxx
