Hello and welcome back! Today I'm back with the next challenge over at the Can You Case It challenge blog. We are all sharing projects that celebrate summer and fun! I could use a little more summer heat around here, I tell you. I guess maybe I should be careful what I wish for, but Friday was rainy and cool at 65 degrees. That's not my idea of summer! So, maybe my bright and sunny card will bring on the warm weather. At the very least, it should brighten someone's day!
So, here it is. I started by painting watercolor shimmer paints through the sunshine mask from the retired Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit. I used three different colors, and blended them together for each ray. I matted that with Calypso Coral Cardstock, added a layer of Vanilla Coaster Board and attached it to a Daffodil Delight card base. The main stamp was inked in Daffodil Delight, and then I used the rock-and-roll technique to add some Calypso Coral ink to the edges of the sun image.
I trimmed the sun image out, and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card with some of the new Gold Thread behind it. A few gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim and the new Metallics Sequins completed the card.
The sun rays were water-colored on the Shimmer White Cardstock, which I just love for water-coloring. Plus, these paints have lots of shimmer on their own too. You can see it a little bit in this photo, but it's even more shimmery in person.
Well, that is all for today. I hope you'll join us over at CYCI and share a summery project of your own! Thanks for stopping by.
