Many Smiles

I turned to the CAS(e) this Sketch challenge for my first inspiration and the Inspired By All the Little Things challenge for added direction.  
 The colors are actually a little more soft, more similar to the Inspired by challenge of the yummy colors on those cookies.  
 The real starting point was the dot background.  I used Translucent Embossing paste with a Tim Holtz stencil and then used white embossing powder on the still wet paste to get my white dots.  
 I then used several colors of Distress Stain on watercolor paper.  When these inks are spritzed with water, the inks run, making for fun designs and the colors mingling.  The leave die cut by Memory Box helps make this fit the Inspired By challenge.  
 Here's a close up of the dots.  
 Here is the CAS(e) this Sketch.
And the adorable Inspired By. . . photo challenge.
