Sunshine Greeting

Hello there 🙂 It’s Sunday again, and I’m here to share an inspiration card for this month’s Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge. Our theme this month is “UNDER THE SEA OR FUN IN THE SUN OR BY THE SEA”. I incorporated two of these themes with this card….Fun in the Sun and By the Sea…with this lovely mermaid image entitled Above the Dirt. I colored her up with my Copics, giving her a background of bright rays of sunshine, and some sparkle to her outfit and her tail.

I picked some background paper to coordinate with the image, but found that she was lost while placed against it. To address this, I added a diagonal stripe of white embossed paper, matted with some gold sparkle paper. I added some die cut corner pieces and some white Card Candy to finish this sunshiny card off.

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  1. I can see how the yellow background would gobble up the focus image, but you saved the day and made this a great design and beautiful card. Thank you for sharing with us over at Morgan’s Artworld. We hope to see you again.
