Colorwash sprays

One of my favorite things to do with bold image stamps is to use a resist technique.  Here, I heat embossed the images with clear embossing powder, then sprayed with a colorwash spray.  I used three images from the marvelous marigolds stamp set (a•muse studio) with three colors of spray to make 3 different papers.
after that, I went crazy with dies - dies for the curly white strips (more fun than ribbon!) and for the layers of the sentiment.  there is a ton of texture here, considering what a very flat card this is.

Your card is so creative! The embossing and sprays were a great way to make those papers whose colors go so well together. Great idea to use the swirly diecuts in place of ribbon. I'll have to try that! Thank you for joining us at The Perfect Sentiment challenge.
