Dream big little mermaid...

Hello my crafty friends!

  It's the 7th and that means it is time for a new challenge over on the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook page. For the next couple weeks the theme will be "sunshine". There are many ways to create a card or project within this theme, from using yellow and orange color palettes to grabbing an actual sun ray stencil, the sky's the limit! For my inspiration card I inked up this chubby little merbaby from Whimsy Stamps called Goldie. She does bring to mind a rolly polly goldfish which I thought would be a nice reference back to the whole sunny theme. Another way I incorporated sunshine into my design was by literally coloring rays of sunshine into the top of the water and by going super dark at the bottom it makes the light look brighter. It's hard to tell from the photo but I also added glossy accents to the bubbles which looks really cool in person. I'm also going to enter this card into the current "anything goes" challenge over at Whimsy Stamps. :)

Ok, now it's your turn to create something for our "SUNSHINE" themed challenge. As always there is a $20 gift certificate to the 7 Kids store up for grabs and there are a lot of fun new goodies arriving soon so check it out!
