You Did It Star ~ CMCC68 & SSSC265

Good Wednesday morning!  It's Colour Me time once again!  This week is a bright and cheerful color combination.  Night of Navy, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Lost Lagoon.  I cannot wait to see the idea that everyone comes up with!  
I also used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch 265

I used a couple different techniques to achieve my card.  First, for the acrylic block watercolor, I stamped some of the challenge inks directly onto my clear block.  I then held it at arms length and lightly misted it with a spray bottle filled with water.  I stamped the block directly onto Whisper White cardstock.  The look is a nice watercolored effect.  I used that piece to cut out the star. 

 The other technique I used was the Bouncing Brayer (the Crushed Curry layer).  I had recently seen this technique used on this card by Claire Broadwater.  I thought it was kinda cool and something I'd never tried before.  

Like I said at the beginning of the blog post....I'm so excited to see what everyone creates!
