Hello, Sunshine

April showers bring May flowers but...Hello, come too!

These rainy days are perfect to stay inside an create!  I have been playing around with my brayer and acrylic paint to create backgrounds.  I put yellow, white and oragne on a craft mat and rolled it around.  Then I put a bracket stencil over that and brayered away.  When that dried, I put orange on the craft mat and inked up the brayer.  The bracket stencil was placed on the paper again and I brayered away.  Once that dried, I stamped the grunge on the card.

The sunshine had yellow paint brayered over the stamp.  Once dried, I put sparkle embossing power because this sun has to SHINE!  Grunge was stamped on the edges.  The sun rays did not stand out so I used an Elegant Writer to draw a line under each ray.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

I love this mixed media card.

Thanks for stopping in and if you would like, let me know what you think.
