HELLO sunshine



CASual Fridays Challenge #59 is Round and Round--use two circles on your clean and simple card.


A round card base counts as a circle, so I die cut one out of watercolor paper. I thinned out some yellow Distress inks and used a paintbrush to swoosh on a replica of the sun. After it dried, I stamped the sentiment from Technique Tuesday and the card was done.

I purposely painted an abstract circle to represent the sun because my first attempt looked like a crosswise cut into a hardboiled egg. I like this version better.
