Kinda Eclectic Ray of Sunshine Greeting Card

Ray of Sunshine and Kinda Eclectic greeting card

c and Ray of Sunshine stamp sets
I love how this card turned out. The two Stampin' Up! stamp sets work well together. The sunburst from the Kinda Eclectic set is a quick alternative to stamping each ray, in the Ray of Sunshine set, individually.

I began by watercoloring the background with an aqua painter and ink picked up from the lids of the ink pads.Nexs to punch out a 1 1/4" circle from a sticky note pad and adhere it to the art piece where I wanted the sut I stamped the dots border by stamping off the ink once before stamping on the art piece. The next step wan's face. Then I stamped the sunburst over the sticky note, removed the note and stamped the face. To complete the art piece I stamped the sentiment, added Washi tape and punched small dots from gold foil paper to adhere around the sun's rays.

To complete the card I adhere it to a piece of cardstock mat and mounted it onto the designer series paper.

Have you tried the aqua painter for your watercolor projects? It is the best way for beginners to get started with watercolor techniques. Seasoned painters love them too! I'd love to hear some comments from you.

If you are looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I would love to help you. You can purchase all of the above supplies at my Stampin' Up! store.

Sunshine Greetings!
