Creative Chemistry 101 Blended distress/ spritz & flick

It is a hot summersday here in Norway - to hot for me. I don't take heat well. So instead of sitting outside in the sun like all normal and sensible norwegians is supposed to do on such a beautiful day - I stayed inside, not that it is any cooler inside, but at least I am out of the sun. So I have been playing in my craftroom and I finally got around to do something with the stuff I learned at Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101 classes.
For this tag I have used the Spritz & flick technique for the background. I love the bright colors and the contrast of the black letterst against the bright orange. I don't do bright colors very often - too afraid of them I think, but this came out pretty nice :)
