And here is the card I made to attend this challenge:


I stamped "When Life Gives You" with Lawn Fawn's Milo's ABC's set with Versafine black ink and clear embossed them. I also stamped three lemons and lemonade with Lawn Fawn's Make Lemonade mini set with Versafine black ink and clear embossed them. It makes the custom sentiments of "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". Then I masked the lemons and lemonade and brushed three different colors of Distress Oxide inks all over the background. I use a curve line die to cut out the background into two parts and applied foam tapes to mount them on a piece of yellow cardstock. I removed the masks and colored lemon and lemonade with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush. I also highlighted some areas with clear Wink of the Stella pen. Finish the card by sprinkled some water on the Distress Oxide background and dropped some Tonic Studio Nuvo crystal drops. Below is another look of the card:

The Ton June Challenge - Color Palette Challenge

Here is The Ton June Challenge - Color Palette Challenge, below is the challenge photo:




And here is the card I made to attend this challenge:



I used two techniques on this card. The first technique is Perfect Pearl lifting using the Wave stamp set. I stamped the first layer of wave with Versamark ink pad on blue cardstock. Then I brushed Perfect Pearl powders on top of the image. I stamped the second layer of wave with Versamark ink on top of the first layer, so the second layer will lift some of first layer's Perfect Pearl powder. I stamped the third layer with navy blue ink pad to finish the shimmery wave. For the pyrotechnics, I used the second technique which is the Transfer Gel with foil paper. I stamped the pyrotechnics with a thin layer of Transfer Gel. Let it dry completely. Then, I put different colors of foil paper on top of each pyrotechnic and went through the laminator. Lifting the foil paper and the dimensional sparkling pyrotechnics are what you will get. Finish the card by silver embossing "You are so awesome" on the background. Below is another look of the card:



Different angle can see different colors of the foiled pyrotechnics, very cool! Below is a closer look of the card:



Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up, MFT
Stamps: The Ton Stamps
