A Mixed Media Color Challenge #3

Hi everyone!  How's your summer going?  I spent most of the day with my mom at the mall to stay cool!  I don't mind the heat, but I hate the humidity!  Does nasty things to my hair!  LOL!
 
But I did squeak some time in my cool basement to make a card for A Mixed Media Color Challenge

I started with some water color paper and Distress Stains in Faded Jeans and Broken China.  I spritzed it with water and then let it dry.  I did use a heat tool to make the ink travel around a bit.  I like the look...kind of like marble.  Then I used my new find...Modeling Cream.  I used it before in a pearl color, and I found it in gold at Hobby Lobby.  I used it with a stencil I also found at Hobby Lobby.  The sentiment (which is not centered now that I look at it!) was stamped with Delicata Golden Ritz ink.  The stamp is from Hands of Time by Papertrey Ink.  The rose is from Prima.  I wanted the gold to match the sentiment, so I took a piece of cardstock and inked it with the gold ink then cut it into strips and glued them next to each side.  Jennifer McGuire does this all the time to save on paper!  

I used the CAS(E) This Sketch for my layout.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
