Reasons to be Happy


Today over at the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog. We have a NEW challenge it's to use Monochromatic Shades of Yellow.

For this card, as the colors we are challenged to use are shades of Yellow. I knew I needed a happy sentiment. So I started the card out by stamping the sentiment. Then I brought out my stencil. And then various shades of distress yellow distress inks. I only have a few so I used both the oxide and the distress inks. Then I used a water bottle to activate the element that distress inks are known for.

Stamps: CTMH Central Park Scrapbooking Seasons & Nature
Paper: CTMH White Daisy
Ink: CTMH Archival Black, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade, Distress Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Scattered Straw
Accessories: CrafTreat Stencils SunRays

A complete list of the supplies is under the picture. The list, contains compensated affiliate links. If you wish to create a similar card. There is no cost to you for using the links. But it does provide funds to help continue this blog.
