Sand Castle Card for Imagine Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils

Hello and welcome to another fun day of the Imagine Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils collaboration! All week long, the folks on each of the Design Teams have been showcasing fun projects using products from both awesome companies. Here's my creation for today.

I used the Sand Castle for my card. I used several colors of Versa Fine and a Memento ink to color the castle and the background. I used finger daubers for everything. Would you like to see the colors I used?

These colors are fantastic. They are so rich and blend beautifully together. Before I inked my sky, I embossed the sand castle.

I used Imagine Crafts' iRESISTibles spray to create the sand and on my main card. I just love the texture that spray creates!

The fab ribbon I used (look like rippling water, right?) is from May Arts. I adore this ribbon! I didn't glue it down completely so that it had some movement. Below is the full link list for today. I'll have another collaborative project tomorrow. Be sure to leave some love along the way for a chance to win some awesome prizes! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
