Well, there's not much sunshine here today. Unlike the hot sunny weather we had last week, Midsummer's Day has dawned cold, wet and windy. But never mind, here's some sunshine in stamped form.
These are the cards I have med for this month's Twofer Card Challenge - Sunshine. An encouragement card and a birthday card, made using a very old (about 25 years, I think) unmounted stamp which came in a grab bag. I love the cheerful face and chubby cheeks,
Blimey, for a CAS card this was a lot of trouble! My first attempt went totally awry, with both the sun and sentiment badly positioned and a large ink blob appearing out of nowhere. My second attempt used Promarkers instead of watercolours, and the edges of the blue area were too crisply defined for the look I wanted. Finally I got the positioning right and went back to watercolour, drawing the edges of the blue out on the right with an almost-dry brush to give a windswept look.

Now the second card.
This time I stamped the sun onto hot sunshine colours of card and die cut them. Three squares is a classic layout for a slimline card, especially with a nice l-o-n-g sentiment to underline them.
