A Sunny Birthday
This is week 1 of the challenges over on the "CASology" Blog. Each week they will provide a word for the inspiration for the challenge that week and this weeks word is Sun. I am not really happy with this card but that happens from time to time, so I'm posting it anyway and hope to have time later in the week to make another card for the challenge that I like better.
The card base is glossy white card stock and this is my 4th attempt, seriously everytime I would get almost done a ink smear would find its way onto the card. I used a nestability to cut out a mask for my sun shape. I applied ink with a sponge in yellow and stamped over it with a flower stamp from Hero Arts in apricot.
I masked off the bottom of the card and sponged green ink for the grass and used a stamp with the same green ink to give some dimension. The flower and sentiment are from Penny Black.
It has been pouring rain here this afternoon and evening, hope you are experiencing sunnier skies.
Thanks for stopping by!
