Celebrate Sunshine...

Hi folks, I'm sharing another card made with the Beachy Waves stamp from Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes release. You can find all the products from the release HERE.

I inked the stamp, starting at the top, with Fossilized Amber followed by Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxides and used the mini round blending tools to blend the colours and get rid of the harsh lines where the inks met, spritzed the stamp with water, placed the Distress Watercolor card on top and let it sit for a minute or so to allow the the card to absorb the ink.
I die-cut the word Celebrate 4 times from Simon Says Stamp White Cardstock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Handwritten Celebrate Thinlits and layered to create dimension. I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Four Seasons Saying with SSS Intense Black ink.
I stamped the small sun image from Simon Says Stamp Four Seasons Sayings with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide on to scrap card 3 times, heat embossed with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and cut out leaving a white border.
I attached a torn panel of vellum, White Eclectic Elements Thread across the bottom of the panel, added a double thread bow, the sun images and sequins.
We've got plenty of sunshine in my neck of the woods but unfortunately accompanied by a very chilly wind and who would have thought I'd still be wearing my Nanook Of The North dog walking jacket in June. Have a great weekend whatever you're doing and I'll see you all on Monday with my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday's a little sneaky peek
