Let the Sun Shine!

I had to make a card to fit the Impression Obsession Challenge-Sending Sunshine and the only way I could think of doing so was to take a scene die and add my own sunshine. So that is what I did with this wonderful lighthouse die cut.


On white card stock I die cut the lighthouse scene and then proceeded to blend inks with my brushes to make the colorful background on another sheet of white card stock. I sort of guesstimated where the colors would be needed for the sun, the rocks, sun on the water and the roof of the lighthouse. It worked out pretty good I think too. Next I glued the die cut panel onto the colored card stock and then with my trimmer cut the panel down about a quarter inch on each side and then added it to the orange card base. The last thing I did was to add the sentiment.
