May Arts + Authentique + Imagine Crafts

Welcome to Day 2 of the May Arts, Authentique & Imagine Crafts Hop!
I had a ton of fun working with these products! I was given product from the Harmony line to work with from Authentque, so that is what all of my projects feature!

First up- this pretty card :) I sprayed the left side of the card base (which I'm so in love with- card bases ready to use in gorgeous paper? YES, PLEASE!) with irresistible texture spray in wedding dress. I used momento luxe ink in morocco to drag my white frayed flowers across so they would match the pretty flowers in the card base.

 I added some 1.5" pink tulle around the focal panel for some extra texture! The irresistible spray is so cool- subtle, but you can FEEL it!

This next card I sprayed the card base with Fireworks Tangelo- hard to capture in pics, but there is a ton of shimmer! 

I used a sticker for the detail on the top & bottom of the focal panel, tied 5/8" salmon faux canvas around the base & popped the element on top of it all.

Last I've got another fab card base. I sprayed my 1.5" white solid/wrinkled ribbon with Fireworks Summer Sky to tie in the blue in the focal image (from the card stock sticker sheet). I also spritzed some on the 'life card' before tying that (now) blue ribbon around it & adding the focal element. The 5/8" dark silver satin pleats add another pretty detail. :)

That's it for me today- but be sure to check out the inspiration all week! Details on the giveaway are below!!
