Bring sunshine

I had a chance to make a few cards last weekend for the Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast. The challenge for this card was to use black a and a bright color as your main colors. What a great excuse to build a card around this Technique Tuesday sentiment. I cut a rectangle as my main image panel, then colored it with shades of yellow Copics to get a gradient effect (Note to self: buy more shades of yellow markers!) When it was good and dry, I stamped the sentiment, then adhered the panel to a black base. The second yellow layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder - love this new one that looks like wallpaper. I also colored a little sun image and used circle punches to cut it out and layer it. A fun little bow out of gingham finishes the card off. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your day is full of sunshine!
