Making My Own Sunshine And....

As the sentiment says, sometimes you just have to make your own sunshine.


Took Concord & 9th's awesome Tree Ring and turned it into a sun.  Added Julie Ebersole designed Essentials by Ellen All Inside sentiment and we are having fun.  Watercolored the "sun."


Wanted some coordinating paper on the side of the card so I made my own using a little stamp from Concord & 9th's Birdie Banners.


Using very little water, I painted the stripes on the side of the base card using the same Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors that I used to color the sun.


Added some gold glitter tape for some fun (I'm not sure what brand my tape is but I've linked to something similar).

Tomorrow I'll be back with a "very special" post and a nice giveaway.  Actually, I hate teases but I'm just feeling it.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Perky

  5. You are right! You really created your own sunshine! I love to make one thing from another, but I don't know if I would have made it from the tree ring to the sunshine. Your card is amazing! You are so talented.
