Color Bursts

I've been playing around with Ken Oliver's Color Bursts and boy are they addictive. I think I could spend all day colouring paper!

I took one of my watercoloured masterpieces (tee hee) and die cut it three times with My Favorite Things Double Dot Border Die. I wanted to have the dot strips raised up from the background but without foam dots so I die cut the dots from white card stock so that I had 3 white die cuts to layer behind each watercoloured piece.

The dots were adhered to glitter card stock and I created a black frame from two MFT Rectangle Stax Dies. The sentiment is from MFT Say Hello Transformables Die. It was die cut from silver and black card stock and I just snipped the word from the frame. I adhered them together slightly off set. Love how this card turned out!

I'm entering this card for My Favorite Things You Could Be A Card Design Superstar Challenge here and for Simon Says Stamp Die Crazy Challenge here.
