Hello Summer Card

This card is for a few challenges...

I cut a honeycomb overlay from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge (CTMH) and used it as a stencil. After the modeling paste dried, I used PearlEx Watercolor CD for some shimmer...but I must say it didn't work out exactly the way I I had to add more colors using ink pads (I tapped some ink on my craft mat and added water, then colored with a paintbrush).
Finally, I added some stamped elements, the teal shimmer trim and some gold shimmer spritz.
