You are my sunshine ...


Hi everyone.  Time for another fun challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This challenge is being hosted by me and I have chosen this code word for inspiration ...




Lots of ways to interpret this code word.  Above I created a watercolored background by squirting yellow, light orange and dark orange re-inkers onto my craft sheet, misting with water and then dragging a piece of watercolored paper through the ink (smooshing technique).  Once dry, I placed my sunburst stencil on top and added a coating of granular gel.  I love the pieces of plastic in this translucent gel medium ... it really makes the sun sparkle.




Prize:  7 digital images


I hope I have inspired you to join in the fun at ATCAS.  As always, our challenge is open for two weeks so there's lots of time to make a card to enter.  Just remember to keep your entries CAS, follow the code word ... and HAVE FUN!
