My Third Challenge......
Create a card incorporating Coral, Lime/chartreuse and aqua/light turquoise 
I have made two cards, trying out different techniques...
I sprayed CS with the required colours for the challenge.
I randomly tore two of them and used my Multifaceted cutaway die for the third one.
I layered the Coral and Lime card, tore the die cut Aqua one and attached it to the Lime one.
I also used the die cut again as I wanted three Coral shapes to pop into the blue die cut die shape.
I sprayed CS with Aqua and Lime and die cut the 'Happy' sentiment, finishing off with a few sequins.
Grungy feel to the card with modern colours.

 My Second Card.......
I used the same colour sprays again 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!
