Hello lovely people. I hope you are having a marvellous weekend? We actually have a little drop of the above mentioned here in the SW UK today - all I keep hearing in my head since making this card is The Temptations singing, 'I Got Sunshine On A Cloudy Day' - for the benefit of those too young to remember Tamla Mowtown, here it is. It was made in the day when you could understand every word that was sung - Oh my word . . . I've turned into my mother!!
OK, here is my take, explanation at the end, as usual.
I knew that I wanted to use a nice, bright, cheery colour to brighten the very dull and very rainy days we have been having lately here in our part of the UK, so my first thing I did was reach for my yellow card-stock! I cut a panel the size I wanted for my first layer and then cut a white piece the size I wanted for my focal layer. Then I remembered I had a 'Sun Rays' embossing folder by Crafts Concepts and run the focal piece through my Cuttlebug.
Next, I remembered I had die cut the word 'sunshine' out of yellow card-stock a very long time ago, so I dug that out. My first layer of yellow card-stock was lighter than the die-cut word and I had completely run out of the other yellow (note to self, must order more), so I ran my 'Daffodil Delight' ink pad over the lighter layer (Daffodil Delight was the colour of my die-cut word) and sprayed with my home-made gold shimmer spray - a little more added sunshine - you are getting the gist of it here now aren't you?
I flush mounted the focal piece to the yellow layer and then added that with some foam for dimension. I finished the whole thing off with a couple of little stamped words from Hero Arts 'Everyday Messages' - which is a marvellous little set for addition greetings - some Glossy Accents 'dew drops', and there it was, exactly as I had envisioned it!
Have a wonderful Sunday and upcoming week!
