Hello Sunshine!

Hi everyone!

After quite a long crafting/blogging break, I'm sharing a card I made today. I used a new set from Hero Arts and decided to use my distress inks. Here's my card:

I used some watercolor paper and used 4 different colors of distress inks to create the background. I swiped the colors on my craft mat and then spritzed the inks with water. I then "smushed" the paper on the inks and heat set it. I dipped the paper into the ink splatters two more times and then heat set it again. I wanted the background to look like a sunrise so I stamped the daisies in black. The sentiment also comes from the same set (Hello Sunshine Daisies). I mounted the background on black cardstock and then adhered it to the base of the card. Super easy card but so much fun to make!

I'll be entering the card in the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday--Anything Goes
Simon Says Monday Challenge--"We can see clearly" which I interpreted to mean using clear stamps
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge--Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend, everyone!
