Hello Sunshine

Hello Sunshine
Featured Card - Peekaboo Peach

Whisper White CS - 4 1/4 x 11, 4 x 5 1/4
Peekaboo Peach CS - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Watercolor Paper - 3 3/4 x 5 (or big enough to fit flower die)

This card uses Pear Pizzazz for the card base.

 This card uses Watermelon Wonder for the card 
base and to color in the heart outline.

Hey All!!  Today's project is this sweet, but simple card I created using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies and Sunshine Sayings stamp set.  These two sets can also be purchased as a bundle!!  I had SO much fun putting this card together, I created two more using the other dies in the set.  Not to mention, it takes little time to create!  Both the stamp and die set are featured in the Annual SU! catalog.

To create the shapes, I used Watercolor paper along with an Aqua brush and ink that coordinates with the cardstock base that I chose.  What I LOVE about this technique is that, depending on the amount of water/ink that you use, you end up with a different look for each die.  You can have a softer look if you use more water on your brush.  You can also deepen the color by going back over it with more ink.

Please note that the color is a bit off in my video.  The Peekaboo Peach looks more yellow than peach.  BUT try as I might, I just couldn't get an exact match.
