This is my sample card for the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers with our challenge being Weather Related/Under the Weather.
I did the sun rays for the weather, the flower centre for the sun (under the bear), and the bear holding a flower for the feel better. I think I may have coloured my Koala too dark though. Oh dear!
On my card base I sponged on the distress inks for the rays using Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade along with my Life Changing Blender Brushes and my MFT stencil. For the sun, I inked up the Loopy Flower Stencil flower centre with the same colours and spritzed with water before laying down on card stock. Once dry, I die cut the piece with the Spellbinders Circle die, then spritzed with my home made Perfect Pearls mix, mixing in a Mini Mister the Perfect Pearls and water. I use a fair amount of Perfect Pearls until the Mister is opaque looking. The sun is sparkly, which you don’t see in the pictures. In my Misti I then placed the circle on the card base where it would be and stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Monarch Orange.
In my Misti I stamped my image, (which is from Reverse Confetti, but no longer available) with Memento Ink, then coloured with Copic Markers. I think I could have done without using the darkest brown Copic. To put it all together I added foam tape to the circle and attached to the card base, then added foam squares to the Koala and attached it to the Sun. It really is cute.
(I have linked you to an adorable Koala from Lawn Fawn which I love, and must get.)
I hope you have enjoyed this card today and wish to thank you for visiting.
