Sunny Days

Hope you are well during these unprecedented times
Being creative certainly has helped me feel happy.  Having some extra time to play has been good.
I had this stencil sitting out on my desk after using it last week so decided to try a totally different colour palette to create a sunny, summery looking card.

So onto my card details.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I'm using the Altenew Dahlia stencil which is a 2 part stencil meaning that you add colour over Stencil A, remove it and position Stencil B over to add another colour and the details.
I laid Stencil A down first and rubbed over it with some Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink.  When I was happy with the coverage, I removed that stencil and positioned Stencil B over then panel and inked with some Mowed Lawn DI using a blending sponge.
I placed the piece into my Misti, then stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Clair black ink then clear heat embossed it.
I mounted the panel onto a piece of matching yellow, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
