Bring on the Sun!!

Summer just makes me happy, I think it is mostly that the day is lighter longer!!!
 Anyway, makes for a fun reason to create a sun design on a card and that is also the Addicted to CAS challenge this week.  I started out with watercolor paper and some Distress Stains. I could play with these all day long and every time they turn out different. That neat sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. I have been waiting for a chance to use this set!!!!
 When the inks were dry, I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil for my rays with some white embossing paste.  
This also fits the Simon Says challenge.
 And for a fun project....
 My daughter created a gift for a friend who is moving away and I just had to share.  She started out painting the bottles with chalkboard paint.
 She then used a Chalk Marker to create her design. These are a ltitle more then just chalk.  You can wash it off but it is pretty stable. 
Love the verse she used.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
