Joy Clair August Challenge

**This is one of two posts that I have today!  If you are looking for the Cards for Little Hearts Blog Hop please go here.**

Hello Blogging Friends!!

Today is the start of the Joy Clair August Challenge!  

Here is the inspiration photo:

Theme:  Anything Goes using Layers!

For my card for this challenge I decided to use the Joy Clair Bee Kind stamp set because of all the gold and yellow in the above photo and I used color layering with different color inks.

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of watercolor paper, black ink and the Joy Clair Bee Kind stamp set and arranged the stamps the way I wanted them on my card and I put the first layer of black ink onto the card.  Next I took some Fossilized Amber distress ink and my inking tool and applied the next layer of ink.  Then I took some Tumbled Glass distress ink and layered that in the middle of the card.  I really love this fun Bee Kind stamp set, it is just perfect for Summer Cards!

Here is a closer look at my card:
