A Little Sunshine

Hi and welcome to another fabulous sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week, our hostess is the super-talented Kim Singdahlsen.  She has come up with a fun and unique sketch for us.

My mind went in many different directions with this sketch but I ended up settling on a rather obvious theme:


I used some NBUS stamps and dies from WPlus9 and some ink blending on this CAS card.

I started by blending some Lemon Chiffon, Duckling and Goldenlocks ink in an ombre fashion before die-cutting the word "sunshine" and the sun.  I then did the same with some Sea Glass ink for the clouds.

Once I had everything positioned where I wanted it, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have done some wonderful things with this sketch so be sure to check them out. 

Products used:

Stamps:  Sending Sunshine (WP9)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Duckling, Lemon Chiffon, Goldenlocks, Sea Glass (SSS)
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Sunshine Layers dies

Cheers
Karren
