INKspired Sketch Challenge #141 - Sharing Sunshine

 Hello Everyone!  Welcome to another INKspired Artists sketch challenge created by Teneale Williams.

I actually loved the challenge this sketch gave me! I had to think way out of the box and stretch me to look in a different direction than usual.

I had just got the Sharing Sunshine Stamp Set in the mail, and couldn't wait to use it! I thought circle, oh my gosh, I can do this! I also wanted to make a card that could be masculine or feminine, in saying this, I made two. The card also features the new Biggest Wish Stamp Set. So let me know what you think!

I used vellum to stamp my Sunshine for the white back ground, and Basic White card stock for the So Saffron back ground. I was basically experimenting with the Sunshine before I decided on what the rest of the cards would look like. I used the Mango Melody and Cajun Craze Inks for the rays, and So Saffron Ink for the centre.

I chose something that could be uni-sex and started using the Biggest Wish Stamp Set to decorate the Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Grey Granite strips of card stock (in Soft Suede Ink). Then I used Mango Melody, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze Inks to randomly stamp the smiley face to the back ground.

I chose to use Mango Melody, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake strips of card stock and decorated with the Biggest Wish Stamp Set. I thought the vellum Sunshine looked best on the White back ground and more colourful strips behind.

I just added the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sharing Sunshine Stamp Set in Soft Suede to White cardstock and trimmed around it (set on with dimensionals).

I don't know about you, but the Sharing Sunshine Stamp Set just makes me SMILE all over!!!

Thanks for having a look at my blog contribution, and leave a message if I can help you make this card or assist in getting you started in creating lovely creations for yourself!

Now it's time to hop forward to Katrina's blog.  I can't wait myself!

Cheers and happy stamping!
