Happy 2

Today's Card......
                                                      
I used the various colours of sprays for the background card.
I popped on the Multifaceted creative screen stencil and lightly sponged on pigment ink.
However, this was too pale so I used a diluted white gesso with water, 
sponged over the pigment ink, which worked really well.
                                                          
The white gesso is matt against the shimmer of the mica sprays underneath, 
which hi-lighted the pattern on the stencil much better.
I used a sprayed CS for the 'Happy' sentiment and stamped 
and layered the 'birthday' sentiment in coral.
I finished the card with layered up pieces of the die cut under the Birthday sentiment.
I enjoyed doing this technique and had a fun and messy time again!
