Simon Says Stamp and Creative Card Crew Challenges

The challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week is "Anything Goes" and at Creative Card Crew it is "Child's Play". I had fun making this card with some great Hambo stamps and a new technique (to me anyway). I cut a couple circles with my nesties and attached them to a white piece of cardstock as a mask. Then I sprayed the cardstock with several colors of Smooch Spritz. After it dried, I removed the masks and outlined the white circles with a thin black marker. I stamped the sentiment in one and the boy with his sandcastle in the other white circle. I also stamped the sand castle on thin cork paper and cut it out. I paper pieced the flag and the little boy's shirt and colored him with my Copics. I really like how it turned out and will try this again in the future.
