The Card Concept #55 {You Are My Sunshine}

I'm really enjoying playing along with Anna Kossakovskaya's CASometry Challenge 2. Make 5.
She is challenging us to make five cards using the same stamp set.
This is such a great idea -- especially for someone like me who always tends to want to grab
my newest stamps to play with.



I had all sorts of ideas, but then remembered Anna's Challenge,
and decided to use my PTI Spring Woods stamp set to make my Clean & Layered card.


I started by using my PTI Scene IT: Skyscapes sunburst die as a stencil and blended ink
onto my background panel.
I diecut the Spring Woods branch and bird and stamped them in Altenew Dark Chocolate,
PTI harvest gold, bright buttercup, summer sunrise, limeade ice and simply chartreuse.
I used my MISTI and added ink to my stamps a second time, using the rock 'n roll technique.
I adhered these to my card, using dimensional adhesive for the bird.


I stamped my sentiment using Reverse Confetti's Lovey Words Coordinates 
("you are my") in dark chocolate.
I used the same rock 'n roll technique on my "Sunshine", which is from 
Studio Calico's Sending You Sunshine stamp set.

Thanks for looking!

I keep seeing this challenge mentioned and think it's such a fabulous idea - I'm ashamed to say some of my stamps have only ever been inked up once! I love the brightness of this card and love your ombré stamping technique - gives a lovely result. Xx
