Sending you Sunshine

Dear Ones~

I have been finding more time lately to play in my craft room. LOVE IT!!! So there will be several posts with cards coming up.

Here's the first card:

I really like the bright sunny look of this card, hence the greeting. Here I used a background stamp from Neat and Tangled called Faceted. I white heat embossed it on watercolor paper and used my Distress Inks to color it in. I love doing watercolor resist on a background. It comes out differently every time. After I stamped the image on watercolor paper I colored it with the same Distress Inks as the background and die cut it into a circle.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx, Ocean Mist, Jelly Bean Green
 and White Card Stock
Neat and Tangled Faceted Background Stamp
Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio 
and Twisted Citron
Flourishes Lots of Thoughts Stamp Set
Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Dies
MFT Stitched Circles Dies
Stickles  and Stash Ribbon

This will be entered in:
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Ray of Sunshine
Scrappy Land Challenge - Anything Goes

Hope you are having a wonderful day, and have great plans for the weekend. Maybe you will watch the Super Bowl, I know we will. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!!
