Lord knows I need some!! I’m pretty sure it’s rained all but maybe 5 days in the month of March and so far in April. Today we actually had a very nice day, yesterday too, and I’m pretty sure this card is to blame!! I made it for MYSELF as I needed a little sunshine and it sure did cheer me up!!
Okay, if I must be honest, I made this card for the Color Throwdown Challenge 137!
As soon as I saw the color “Summer Sun” I knew exactly what set I had to use!! Sunshine Cheer from Our Craft Lounge! I also used the tree from Swingin’ By. I think they worked perfectly together! I even used the cloud from Sunshine Cheer as a mask for the airbrushed sky! It worked great!!
One of the main reasons I love clear acrylic stamps is the ability to manipulate and “bend” the sentiments in many different directions. I love the look of it wavy instead of just straight across! Makes the set even more versatile! I free-hand cut the sentiment and used my copic marker to line the edges so it would stand out a bit! The grass die is MFT – Die-Namics Fresh Cut Grass and the scalloped edge just peeking out is MFT – Die-Namics - Open Scallop Border. The paper… oh how I LOVE the paper -- It’s MMI Stella and Rose – Mabel.
I used a bit of Spica glitter pen on the leaves and a little bit on the sun (the dots) to give it some added shine and sparkle – you can kind of see it here : )
