Stardust

I really enjoyed playing with Hero Arts August card kit. It was a bit different from my usual stamp set which I get to color the images.

In this card, I first ink blended the background with the 3 ink colors from Hero Arts May 2017 card kit. Then I stamped the girls and doves with black ink and heat embosed the stardust/girl. The background was a bit lighter than I wanted, so I went back and applied watercolor with darker shades of the same colors on top (same ink cubes with water added). In the end, I splattered some watercolor droplets and white acrylic paint to finish the card.


I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:
