Nacho Average...Dahlias

Hello Stampers! So happy that our internet is back on and operating correctly! Yay!  Didn't realize how disconnected I was feeling by not having access to the internet.

So today I have some new creations to share with you.  I came across the beautiful color challenge from Nacho Average and I fell in love with it! I think I've shared that Melon Mambo is one of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors and my reintroduction to Bermuda Bay is going well.  What an awesome blue. I has so much fun playing with this color combo that I made two cards with it.  I know I'll be saving this combo for future cards.

On both cards I used a technique called Faux Tearing (I think) and it is such a fun technique.  On this card, I sponged the Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.  I then stamped the new stamp set Regarding Dahlias onto it.  I really love the way it came out.  I kept it simple by not adding too many layers. The base of the card is Pool Party since the two colors are bright, which I love. I also sprayed the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz onto the sponged colors. 

So same technique on this card, but changed the base of the card to Melon Mambo. I layered Pool Party onto the Melon Mambo. The sentiment is from the Sweet Essentials.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time. Have a great Friday!
