Sunshine.......

Sending You Sunshine......
I was inspired by several challenges to make my card.
Here's my Card....
CAS Mix Up challenge is to use stamps, die cutting and one other choice...
my choice is masking and water colouring.
I do so enjoy mixing CAS with Mixed Media.

The Sunshine sunflowers have been stamped and masked using grey and yellow inks.
I have then stamped the black rectangle to allow me to spot water-colour the yellow sunflower.
I have stamped the sentiment in black archival ink, die cut the Sunshine sentiment, 
raised it up onto foam and popped it back onto the card.
The card has been layered onto black card stock to finish.
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge inspired me to use The Sunflower
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Mac, it's lovely to see you back with us again and I hope that you enjoyed your holiday. Thank you so much for the comments that you left on my blog on your return, I really do appreciate the time it must have taken you to go through them all. This it a great design and I really like how the colour gradually intensifies as you move towards the main focal point. The die cut 'Sunshine' looks absolutely fabulous and I love how it just blends in with your stamps. A superb card. Crafty hugs, Sandra :)x

Grand entrance! This card is perfect. Thought out in every detail! Even if the fact that you used the gray rather than black ink stamping. Another card that amazed me.
