Awesomesauce! ~ CYP Challenge 208

Hi everyone! Since it's Monday, it's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion. The theme for Challenge 208 is no designer papers and we are excited to have a new sponsor, Zap Pow Designs...such fun images. I decided to go mixed media on my card. The background is heavier mixed media paper spritzed with water and various spray inks, some through stencils and punchinella, and some directly onto the paper. I stuck to mainly blues and turquoise, leaving some of the white showing through. The background was matted with dark blue cardstock for contrast with the white card base.

 I layered up some leftover scraps which were sitting patiently on my desk, awaiting their turn to be stars (literally). The torn text already had a star punched from it. The yellow also had the stars punched from it. I just cut the yellow scrap into a circle and layered it behind the book paper lining up the stars. Vintage Photo Distress ink was used to grunge up the book paper a little more. A scrap of dark blue cardstock was run through my CB with a dotty embossing folder and then a fishtail flag was cut from it. Once those scraps were adhered to the background and doodled around, gesso was pounced through TCW's Mini Punchinella stencil, being sure to have it on the background as well as the collaged scraps to embed them into the background and create another layer.

The cute bottle image was printed on yellow cardstock and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. It was printed a second time on white cardstock and the labels and cap were coloured, fussy cut, and adhered to the bottom layer. The larger label was popped up on foam tape for added dimension. The word Awesomesauce is also from Zap Pow. It was printed on white cardstock, coloured with a Prismacolor Brush marker, fussy cut, and matted in black. Foam tape was used on the two ends and glue in the center. The sentiment came out of my twisted little mind and makes me laugh. I figure this could be a thank you or congratulations card. The finishing details were the orange enamel dots and punched star to which white paint pen dots were added.

That's it for my fun and funky DT card for the No Design Paper challenge at Craft Your Passion.
