My first project was this cup shaped card using the Honey Bee coffee cup card die, which just happened to arrive the same week at this stamp set.
I did a bunch of sponging, spritzing with Pearlized water, and spattering with clear water.
Then I heat embossed the peace sign in White Satin Pearl and White embossing powder. I think they look like bubbles.
The belly band slides off, and has most of the embellishments on it. The flowers are sponged and diecut with Spellbinders Layered Colorful Blooms dies and Nuvo Drops in Galaxy Violet.
The hippie girl is colored with Copics, and I wrote them all down. But that list is at home, and I am in Florida. Just got off a cruise ship... I will have to add that info when I get home. On Tuesday! 😏 Prepared, aren't I?!

Even the inside got some sponge and spritz love! The sentiment is from this stamp set also.
The top portion of the card has a diecut panel with insert tabs for a gift card.
Next I had to play with this awesome VW van. I love all the graffiti on it! The Swirl stencil was the perfect background accent here because the bus is pretty big and makes for a quick cardfront.
I started the background by sponging the 2 colors over the entire panel, then applied the stencils and sponged the same colors over the top. Of course, there was spritzing involved. 😁

Ok, I am really, really happy with the way all of these projects, but this is my favorite. At least for how the techniques and how quickly the idea gelled and came to life.
I did a double stencil technique. First with the Swirl stencil, then with the Comic Dot stencil, without removing the Swirl stencil. LOVE!!
I colored the lava lamp with Copics, list to come later. I also used the Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze Clear and Stardust pens.

I used mostly the same colors for everything, to keep things simple. And because I actually really love this color combo! It is a new one for me. OK, that is the last of my projects for this post. Enjoy the rest of the release!
