Time Out #88 - Inspired by Words

Hello everyone!  The current challenge over on the Time Out blog is the Inspired by Words challenge.  Here's the quote to get you inspired:
 
If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. 
 
I was inspired by the word sunbeams and used this rays stencil to start with.  I used three of the distress oxide inks.  Once I inked up the stencil, I spritzed it with water to get the oxide look and some water droplet marks.  When that was dry, I stamped the sentiment and spritzed it with shimmer spritz.  The word die was die cut four times and layered.   It too was spritzed with shimmer spritz.  I mounted this on a black mat and added some clear sequins.  This sentiment was inspired by the quote too.

So sorry it took so long for me to get around to commenting on the #88 DT cards. You and I had the same thought in going for this stencil. Love the way you placed it and I love the sentiment.
