Color Throw down #451 using Altenew Cube Builder

Happy Wednesday! 

Today's Color Throwdown Challenge had some bright summery colors
 of pink, dark pink, green and white.

I had gotten in my order of the new Distress Oxide Inks and I just had to play. 
I also ordered the Altenew Cube Builder Set and knew I had to combine the two. 

I used Candued Apple and Worn Lipstick for the pinks. I just couldn't find a good green. Lucky Clover was too green  and Peeled Paint was too yellowy so instead i first put down the Lucky Clover and went on top with the Peeled Paint. I loved how it turned out.

This stencil was just so fun to use and the result is just incredible!

After the stenciling was done I spritzed with some shimmer spray and water to get some oxidation and sparkle happening,

I used the Hooray Stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps and the coordinating Hooray Honey cut. The Happy birthday was from the same stamp set and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I just couldn't leave well enough alone and had to add some sequins to it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I may be doing a challenge submission next week but I am going on vacation so I shall see how my jet lag is when I come back!
