This is the second card using the same technique as the "Imagine Card". Love this background. This and the next card "Wonder BD" are from the same piece of cardstock background.

I used a a white 65# cardstock and swiped colors randomly and abstractly over the surface using the Pan Pastel sponges (Hansa Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Violet, Turquoise, Phthalo Green and Streaks of Permanent Red). I then used the square edge of an eraser to make my little box shapes and the lines. I tilted the cardstock up side down and using a very soft brush to flick the eraser bits away. I rubber stamped the words (Heidi Grace Cherry Wood Ln set) with Adirondack Rainbow Dye stamp pad. Then used Krylon Workable Fixative to set my pastels. Used a decorative rotary trimmer for the edges and mounted it to a piece of bright aqua cardstock then onto a very pretty green cardstock.

Note I sprayed with Krylon workable fixative.
