Without Limits

Happy Tuesday!!!  Here I am creating two days in a row!!!!  This card finishes at 5" x 7".  The background starts with china, caribbean sea, and buff.  I used a palette knife to spread the paint, not spreading too thin so I could then add marks with a couple of Catalyst Brushes (#15s B04 and B05). I then splattered with watered down bougainvillea.  Next is stenciling... mini chevron with candy floss, mini spinning tops with a mix of yellow submarine and chalk, and then some sequin waste using the yellow mix with green added (also sponged this around the edges).  The white dots are made with snowflake and the fine tip applicator.  Create without limits is stamped onto a doily with jet black and then some forget-me-not sponged around the center circle.  This is layered onto a gold doily and I've also added a die cut - shading added with a grey Pitt brush marker and then roughly brushed a Tombow marker over the top of the die cut.

Love the layered doilies and the starbursts of colour in the background!
