You're So Cool!

It is one of those sweltering hot and humid days that make you melt when you step outside the door! :-( I ran some errands and had to chill in my craft room for awhile after I returned home.  I decided to bring out these fun Reverse Confetti popsicles after being inspired by the snow cone theme at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  I combined it with the layout for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and was happy with my "cool" creation!

I did a watercolor wash on the background panel using Twisted Citron distress ink then splattered with a Yellow Green color from my Mission paint set.  After that was dry, I splattered clear water spots over the background to have some subtle bleached spots.  

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Let's Chill (Reverse Confetti).
PAPER: Summer Days (Echo Park); Ranger watercolor CS; White (PTI).
INK: Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron distress inks; Memento Tuxedo black.
DIES: Wonky stitched rectangle by Lil' Inker Designs; Popsicle dies by Reverse Confetti; Stitched Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT.
