Challenges, challenges, and more challenges!

You are the BEST!
I’m a challenge addict this week! They’re so much fun and some really take me out of my comfort zone…egads! In one of the challenges listed below I choose to use “Bright Bold Colors” which I normally don’t gravitate towards, so ya, this pulled me out of my comfort zone for sure. 
Here are the Challenges I played along with:
You have to incorporate 3 of the 10 items into your project
A sketch Challenge
So, while I love rainbows, I’m not great at creating them. I did my best to create a rainbow background incorporating “Bright Colors” One of the three things I used for #FF0052. 
I have listed all the supplies for you down below.
I set out on some watercolor paper and pulled out 7 bright rainbow color ink pads and just started laying the color down. After it was dry I dripped some water droplets on it from my hand to create the light ink splatter look. I love how the water removes some of the color and creates a beautiful effect on your project. All in all, I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. As you can see I used the watercolor background in place of the doily in #TMS541. Then I had to figure out what other two things I would use from the #FF0052 list. I decided on Sequins and Foil! 
This was my first attempt at foiling over an embossed image. I heat set the sentiment with clear embossing powder then ran it thru my laminator. I LOVED the results!! I was so impressed. I think I might be hooked on foiling now. I used the second largest oval die in the “Stitched Shapes Dies” to cut out my sentiment to replace the circle in the #TMS541 Sketch.
To replace the rectangle in the #TMS541 Sketch I foiled a 1/4″ piece of tacky tape. I just burnished it with my bone folder and it turned out so great too! #Loveit!
I added 7 sequins to match the inks I used, then embossed the white background with an old dots Sizzix folder I had in my stash.
I hope this inspires you to play along! Let me know if you do. 
Happy Stampin’
