For my first card (I'm #73), I used a STAMPlorations stencil, some sprays, Tim Holtz chit chat stickers, and some very old alphas.  Wanting to keep it in the summer theme, I used warm colors with a sentiment to match.  (There was a 1959 Marilyn Monroe movie with this title).

I placed the stencil on stamp cardstock and used Ranger Clear Emboss It Dabber to go over the design.  After removing the stencil, I sprinkled on Ranger Super Fine Clear embossing powder and heat set it.
Then I took my paper outside and sprayed it with ink sprays:  Dylusions  Squeezed Orange and Maya Road Bubblegum. After waiting a bit, I used a paper towel roll to sop up the excess ink.

I layered with coordinating pink and orange cardstock mats on top of a white card.

Entering these additional challenges:

STAMPlorations CASE it--I cased Deepti's card HERE going for the same ombre background.  I was surprised hers was Heiidi Swapp paper.  I got the same effect with sprays. Entry HERE due June 5
