Hope your day is AWESOME!

Hello my friends! It has been a long time! I hope you will continue to check on me because I love your visits! Today's card is my attempt at  collage stamping. 
That is the challenge this week over at the JUGS!
This week is  technique challenge and I love to try new techniques!  
There is a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  

I wanted to try this with a more masculine card that I needed to make. I have had this great stamp set by WPlus90 Design Studios for quite some time. I thought it would work perfect for collage stamping.
First, I stamped the background with Wild Hare (Color Box).  Next I stamped the stars with Mustard Seed (Distress).  Then I stamped the Baja Blue images and stars. This technique calls for heat embossing, so I used Versamark Ink for the word Awesome and heat embossed in black embossing powder with my heat gun. I distressed all the edges with my Close to My Heart distressing tool.  I spritzed the entire panel with white Smooch Spritz. Hopefully you can see the sparkle on the card.

I am not so sure about this technique, or this card! When I photograph it, the colors on the DP panel do not match the stars! It matches perfect IRL!!! 

Hope you have a great Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by!

I recognize that Wplus9 set! The sentiment and the stars are bold and fun, and definitely make a great masculine card.
