Sunshine??? Where's the sunshine???
It's been a rainy day, no, a rainy week in Germany, and what do the Splotcoasters do??? They come up with a sunshine-themed challenge!!! AAAAARRRGGGHHHHH!!!!! A limited supplies challenge: no designer paper, few embellishments, only sunshine...
Hey, this was an inbelievable hard challenge for a someone who has to stand the German rain which has been lasting for more than a week now - without any stop (except for a tiny little thunderstorm, perhaps...)!
So my limited supplies was the sunshine!!! Not any embellishments!!! LOL!!!
I stamped a scene with some Zindorf-influence (Do you know Michelle Zindorf's wonderful cards? Look at my blog list!), knowing that I never achieve her wonderful results, but nevertheless trying again and again. The palm tree was stamped and colored with markers, then covered with a Versamark pen and embossed with clear powder. I then sponged the island, sea and sky with a lot of Adirondack and Memento inks. I added some waves with a white gelly pen and overstamped the word Sunshine in black, then added some highlights with the white gelly pen. And I couldn't resist to use some tiny beach elements as embellishment (please don't use the buzzer on me because of that, blame it on my sun withdrawal!).
Do you like the card?
