Mark’s Finest Papers - http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/


Today’s card is featuring a stamp from the set “Hello Sunshine” from Mark’s Finest Papers.
http://www.marksfinestpapers.com/servlet/the-2049/*Hello-Sunshine-Stamp-Set/Detail


First I inked the stamp with Palette Noir and stamped it 2 times once on white card stock and once onto some dp.

I cut the images out, for the dp one I used the whole image for the one done on white cs I only used the circle with the face on it.

I colored the image with Copic markers.

For the bg I used a beautiful scene designer paper.

I then popped the dp sun image and once again popped the circle face over it..

I wanted to keep it simple and showcase this gorgeous sun so I decided to only add the sentiment and leave well enough alone.

I really love the way this turned out, I hope you do too.

Good luck to everyone, Nicole
