You are my sunshine!

Hello my friends!

Today the weather is rainy and miserable here…so I decided to create a bright and happy card to cheer me up! I had this little puppy face stamp lying on my desk looking so cute that I couldn’t resist showing him some love! Here is the card I made…enjoy! šŸ™‚

Quick Instructions:

To begin with I applied Fossilized Amber Oxide all over my background and then I used Spiced Marmalade over a stencil to create the sunshine effect. Next I die cut a heart out of white cardstock and blended Oxides and Distress inks to match the colors of the challenges I wanted to take part in. I splattered some water to create the watercolored effect. Since I had the sunshine I decided that it would be fun to make my puppy float on a cloud…but I didn’t have a stamp like that so I used the puppy face from MFT lucky dog stamp set and draw a cloud around him and added a body and a tail to make him look like he is posing. I colored the image using watercolors. While this was drying I white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock. And then I adhered everything down to complete my card! Fun!
