Anyway... back to the card at hand. This card is made based on the sketch by Tui (who got the idea from her sons) at Freshly Made Sketches (FMS#48):
I chose not to put a sentiment on the outside because I think it is just so peaceful the way it is. I added just the slightest bit of sunshine rays in the upper corner (do they show up in the pic?) to bring in the yellow from the DSP on the side and to simulate the feeling of warmth and peace (I Love to sit in the sunshine and just reflect). I stamped the image in Staz-On Black ink and then colored it in with a blender pen and ink(s) - Wild Wasabi, Tango Tangerine, Island Indigo and Soft Suede. The DSP is called International Bazaar and the stamp is from a hostess set called Summer Afternoon (so appropriate - don't you think?). I also used the new Fancy Fan Embossing folder for the texture on the card base.
Hope you enjoyed this card - I had fun making it! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Til next time - Hugs!!
