Sunshine & Laughter

Good Morning!

I have a nice happy sunshiny card to share with you today!  A little contrast to the white snowbanks we still have everywhere.

I used the Spring Tulips and Everyday Sayings stamp sets from Hero Arts.  I created a mask by cutting a 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch window in some scrap paper, placed it over my A2 card and then sponged Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Melon Mambo over the card stock, inks by Stampin' Up!  I then stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Stamped my sentiment using the Melon Mambo Ink.  I then masked off my image using a piece of scrap paper measured to fill the window, grabbed yellow, pink and orange craft paint and my trusty old toothbrush and flicked the colored paint all over to create some texture and to fill all of the white space.

It's bright, it's happy, it's cheery!

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Hero Arts, Masking.

Mod Squad , Spring Forward.
