Enjoying the Sunshine

My Favorite Things Drink up the Sunshine aaa birthday challenge 3

Hello! A few days ago, I received my latest order from My Favorite Things. Yay! I decided to use one of the stamp sets, BB Drink Up the Sunshine, for this months AAA Birthday Challenge.

AAA Birthday Challenge 3

For this card, I stamped the cute little girl onto some watercolor paper with versafine ink. Next, I covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. I covered the image with a mask and attached the My Favorite Things Radiating Rays stencil to the top of the card, making sure to block the bottom portion. I blended some fossilized amber distress ink over the stencil. Next, I carefully removed the stencil and blended peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon to the bottom half to create the look of water. I sprayed on some water to get a distressed look. I removed the mask and colored in the image using Arteza Real Brush pens and a water brush.

Next, I used a stitched die to cut out the card panel. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card stock and attached it to the bottom of the card panel. To finish the card, I attached the panel onto a top folding A2 size notecard.

I just love receiving new stamp sets in the mail! I hope to feature more of what I ordered in upcoming cards! Thanks for stopping by! – Mona
