… when the sun is gone 😉 Yes, crappy weather and cold temperatures in this part of the world… 17°C and we had a heatwave two weeks ago!
Anyway, here is my little contribution to appeal to the sun:
This card came in two times… First I wanted to create a watercolour background, so I used the Aquapainter and Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight on watercolour paper. I die-cut the white cardstock with a kind of stitched “wave” die and adhered the white panel over the watercolour background, popped up with foam adhesives. I then die-cut some letters from the Little Letters Thinlit dies and coloured them with alcohol markers, with an ombre effect. I love how it turned out 🙂 . I stamped the “Hello Sunshine” from the retired set “So You”. You can bend the stamp to follow the curves of the letters below.
The card sit on my desk for many days but I was not entirely happy with it. I tried to put a yellow circle (aka, the sun) above the letters, liked the effect and decided that my sun needed rays… and a little “I” die-cut letter that was left from another project ended up so perfect as a sunray, I die-cut some more:
I coloured them and the circle with the same ombre colours as the letters… and applied a coat of Wink of Stella: it’s so shiny in real life! but for once the photos are not so bad, you can actually have a good insight of the shimmer 🙂
Now for the sun coming back in Europe… I did my best 😉
