Life is But a Dream


Hello!  I have been playing with the August Hero Arts kit that I received on Monday.   Just for fun, I created this dreamy, celestial theme card using the fancy window cut die and stamps from the kit.  I created a watercolor background with watercolor paper inked with Distress Oxide ink Faded Jeans and Salt.  Hope the effects of the salt can be seen in the photo. Stamped the star with Distress Ink Fossilized Amber and added some shine with Clearstar pen and Metallic Gold Gelly pen.

Challenges:
CAS Watercolour Card Challenge: Add salt to watercolor pieces. Used salt on the watercolor background. 
Use Your Stuff: Challenge #275 For love of Children. Create a card with s child theme. 
City Crafter Challenge: Week 375 Make a project with no flowers on it. 
Happy Little Stampers: August Anything Goes with Dies. 

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Your card design is awesome, Theresa!! The amazing die-cut aperture is just perfect with your stamping silhouette images. And the watercoloured background continues with the dreamy look from the visual texture the salt created. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

This is awesome. I received my kit and have yet to crack it open. You did a wonderful job with this. Love that little girl sihlouette flying through that luscious DOX sky! The little stars and wand make it very magic indeed!! Thanks for linking up and playing along with us at Happy Little Stampers August Anything Goes With Dies Challenge.
