Sunshine for you

The Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today takes us on a tour of The Cake Blog. Cakes for all occasions ... I dare say I would love a nibble of one or two! I picked this cake for my inspiration. These colours just stood out to me and I thought a little bit of sunshine would be nice given it is snowing here. For my card, I first embossed my card base with Ecstasy Crafts Roses embossing folder. For my panel I inked my stamp with Tim Holtz Mustard Seed and Wild Honey and spritzed with water before stamping. I then embossed the panel with my Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder and then added more inks with my aqua brush to get deeper colours. For my flower I mixed the two colours together on my craft sheet and spritzed lightly with water then dragged my flower through it, and again used my aqua brush to add more colour. I then styled my rose and spritzed heavily with Glimmer Mist - and I love the results. I die cut my sentiments and sponged on the Wild Honey mixed with a light dab of Gathered Twigs. I added several layers to get the colour the way I wanted it to look. The panel is mounted on fun foam so I could have coverage across the entire piece. A few sequins finished my card. I hope you like it ...

Oh, Kia, this is filled with sunshine and warmth! I LOVE it with the beautiful embossed background with the wonderfully watery distressed inks, and the flower is beautiful! The sentiment ties it all together! Stunning! Hugs, and wishing you more and more sunshine! xoxo
