Hi there crafty friends! It’s Lisa here with you and I’m happy to share a bright and colorful Hello Sunshine card today.
Prior to cutting and scoring the center “rays”, the paper was colored with a variety of dye inks. Color was lifted off using water. It gives a bleached effect.
Using three colors of pigment powder I mixed a small amount of three colors with water: blue, gold, and pink. Each color was flicked separately onto the card to allow the pigment to “settle”, if you will, then I dabbed off the excess and heat set. I did that with each color. So shimmery!! (See below)
The Sunshine die cut was adhered using the super fabulous 4 x 6″ Adhesive Sheets. So easy to use these. I love how strong the adhesive is and that they leave no stringy, goopy stuff in between the die-cut.
Everything is held together using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. This is an immediately tacky, ultra-strong adhesive and my absolute go-to adhesive. I also used the Thin 3D Foam Squares Mix White (using the Large Squares) on the back of the rays panel to give it a very slight amount of dimension. Navy twine tied in a bow finishes it all off.
One more look!
Hope you enjoyed my Hello Sunshine card today!
