You Brighten My Day

You Brighten My Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from SugarPea Designs

Here's my card for the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.  It's kind of a loose take on the sketch, but I think you can still see that the bones are there!

I represented the layout's 5 rectangles with an arrangement of hanging light bulbs from the SugarPea Designs Watt's Up? stamp set.  After stamping the images in black ink, I used yellow Copic markers to color in the bulbs, then used a clear glitter brush pen to outline each bulb with sparkly glitter to give the bulbs a "glow."  The set's "you brighten my day" sentiment was stamped in black ink on a white panel.  I matted the panel on black and yellow cardstock before adhering it to the stamped panel. The finished panel was adhered to a cheery, coordinating yellow card base.

Materials Used:
Watt's Up? stamp set (SugarPea Designs); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); clear Sparkle glitter brush pen (Spectrum Noir); Lemon Drop cardstock (My Favorite Things); Basic Black cardstock (Stampin' Up!); foam tape
