Sunshine Wishes!

Hi, everyone.

Jen here and I’m excited to be back with another post for Gerda Steiner Designs. Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful card created with images from the Hello Sunshine stamp set.

I started this card by ink blending a background panel with sunny colors – I used Hero Hues reactive inks in lemon drop and creamsicle. I ran that panel through an embossing folder for lots of texture. I created the next layer by stamping the sun image from the stamp set in the same 2 ink colors. I also added some ink splatters with the lemon drop ink. I stamped the bear on a piece of white cardstock and added the “happy birthday sunshine” sentiment on his sign.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Tri-blend alcohol markers. I colored the bear withearth brown blend, added some bright pink on his cheeks and ears, and the tiniest amount of orange to color the sun. I added some white gel pen highlights and black glaze pen on his nose and eyes. I cut the bear out with a circle die and also added an orange cardstock mat so the image would really “pop” against the background. I finished the card off with some coordinating sequins.
