Be Amazing!!!

Hi All!

I made this card using Fun Stampers Journey "Be Amazing" Collection.  I love, love, love the colors, stamps, papers, and embellishments...they are so cool!

To create the effect on the circle I started with an acetate sheet.  I added drops of the three Silks around the sheet.  Then I lightly sprayed the Silks with water.   After the Silks moved around a bit and blended on the acetate sheet, I placed the circle on top.  You can then move the cardstock around until you get the look you want.  After the circle dried, I stamped it and flicked the silks over the circle.  Other than the drying, it is a very quick technique will a wow effect!  You can speed up the drying by using a heat gun.

All items used in creating this card are from Fun Stampers Journey:
