Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 176 - Explosion of Colour.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Josephine is hosting our Explosion of Colour challenge, so let's see lots of  vibrant colours in your creations, the more the better.
As usual You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!


For this project I used a mop up sheet of paper.
As they say "Waste Not Want Not" and there were such gorgeous colours on here and what a great start for a theme based on
Explosion of Colour.

Next stage: Stencilling.
I so love this quirky design. Placed it over one side of the paper, secured it with tape, then applied the 3D gel and gold embossing powder on top.
If you look closely you can see the bubbles which are created when it is heated which is one of the things I love about this technique, such gorgeous texture.
Carefully remove the stencil and allow this to dry before cutting to size.

Then I matched up some backing papers which would go with the colours on the paper.

Mat and Layered the papers........
To produce this!
 No stamping which is unusual for me but still like it very much and I have half the paper left so will probably make something similar again.
 I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 Happy crafty card making.
