I needed a little pick-me-up this morning so I went into my craft room to play around a bit!
I played around with my “Ziggy”s, a die cut and a stencil.
Using those things I made two sunshine cards!
~Sunshine Happy Birthday~
To make this card I used a circle die cut as a guide on my watercolor paper. I cut my paper using the stitched rectangles from Lawn Fawn – LOVE those!! See the photo below. Then I used 3 colors of “Ziggy“s – yellow, bright yellow , and orange and colored in some with each color and then used a wet paintbrush to blend the colors.
Then to make the rays I used a Simon Says Stamp Layered Tree Stencil. (See Below) I used the zig pens to trace the outline of the stencil and then filled it in by wetting the ink and blending it with a wet paintbrush.
Finished off the card by doing a really, really light blue wash and added a sentiment from SU! – stamped it with Only Orange craft ink and embossed it with clear powder.
I am linking this card up to these challenges:
My card is full of Sunshine!
I used my Zig Markers to make my mark on my bright sunshine!
I think Summer is full of Sizzlin’ Hot Sunshine!
My Sun and the rays and my light blue background were all watercoloured!
Sunshine galore in this card!!
I am also going to take my Sunshine to play at Paper Issues!
I was PIN-Spired by this photo –
I also made another version of this card ~ Here it is ~
And, I think I will end on that note, BECAUSE of ALL of YOU – my world is brighter!!
Thank you so much for the SUNSHINE you bring to my life!!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
