Hello Sunshine Card



I mentioned before I was going to try entering more challenges that are sketches or colour based so this is my start.  The colour challenge is to use blue, green and yellow so I decided to do the butterfly that is from a Stampendous set of three large butterflies.


I used my Zigs and water, using yellow and blue and then blending those so I ended up with a pretty green to finish the colours needed. I die cut with the stitched rectangle die that cuts the image layer and the frame.



I then cut a piece of yellow cardstock the same way used a piece of plain paper on the back to join the layers back together. Finished it off with a stamped 'hello' and a die cut sentiment 'sunshine'. Have to say this sentiment is one of my favourites as it has the dot attached for the 'i'. I wish they all did that, such a killer on the eyes trying to find the itty bitty little buggers. You can see a bit of buckling there as the watercolour paper warped slightly but that will settle in time.

I decided I didnt want to attach bling or shimmer, I liked this just as it is.
