Joy Clair June Challenge

**This is one of two posts I have today.  If you are looking for the DL.ART JUNE LINKY CHALLENGE please go here.  Thank you!!**

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today is the start of the Joy Clair June Challenge!

The theme for this challenge is:  Summer Time

Here is an Inspiration Photo for the Joy Clair June Challenge:

When I saw this inspiration picture I knew just what kind of card I wanted to create!  I wanted to use all the colors of these lovely popsicles and I wanted to use my new Distress Oxides and the UH-OH Ink Splatter stamps to make my card!  I thought of what the ground looks like after a bunch of kids have some popsicles!

Here are the stamp sets that I used:

UH-OH Ink Splatter 


Hello Sentiments 

Now here is the card I made:


Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide
Faded Jeans Distress Oxide
Broken China Distress Oxide
Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide
Wilted Violet Distress Oxide
Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide
Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide
Rose Gold embossing powder
Watercolor paper
Kraft card stock

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Watercolor paper and spritzed it with water and then I took my Joy Clair UH-OH Ink Splatter stamp set and the different Distress Oxides and stamped the Watercolor paper with them.  I spritzed some more water onto the paper and then dried it with my heat gun.  I then took the sentiment from the Joy Clair Hello Sentiments stamp set and stamped that with VersaMark onto the watercolor paper and heat embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder and then attached the watercolor paper to the base of the card.  When I saw the Inspiration Photo I immediately thought of melted popsicles and the UH-OH Ink Splatter stamps and the Distress Oxides!
