Smiley Sunshine !

Hi there!

The inspiration photo at Inkspirational challenge immediately made me smile... and not only did it make me smile... it took me back to my childhood, remembering my kindergarten drawings where the sun always had a smiling face !

So I just had to play along... even if the sun on my card(s) doesn't have a smiley face... it has a smiley sentiment!

After cutting out the sun from my stamped and colored card stock for the first card, the negative cut just begged to be a card as well 🌞yay... two cards!

And number 2 :

I used:

  • Circle Doodle background stamp stamp from Simon Says Stamp
  • Distress oxide inks for water coloring
  • Versamark ink and white embossing powder
  • Sun Cutting file Design ID #140093
  • Sentiment for the first card cut with my Silhouette cameo (Font : Athena of the ocean)
  • Sentiment for the second card from Altenew Sketchy Floral set

I followed this method from Jennifer McGuire to color my stamped panel. So easy and so much fun!
