Stenciled Card ~ Color Dare #475

Welcome to our Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge. For this challenge you get to use ANY colors you like as long as they are Bright & Bold.  

I decided to get out some stencils to create a bold background of pattern and color. The inks are Distress Oxide so after applying them to the cardstock I splattered some water on it to activate the ink and create a bit more texture. 

Then I applied the same inks to plain cardstock, splattered the water, stamped the images in black then die cut them out. 

Once the card was assembled I added a sentiment and some beads to the flower centers. The last step was to paint some shimmer on the flowers.
