You are my Sunshine Inked Card

Hello Everyone, its Trish here again with another card for you showcasing some Amazing products in the store.

Today's card is centered around the Jillibean Soup Mini Placemats Star Light Pack.  This pack of 6 cards are absolutely adorable and I thought they would make great focal points on a card.  I decided to use the Sun placemat and of course, had to ink it up :)

I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mustard Seed to ink up the whole sun and then used Spiced Marmalade around the outside of the sun.  Inking was done with my trusty Mini Ink Blending Tool.  

Once that was complete, I wanted to make my card base just slightly larger than the placemat so it is cut at 3.25" x 4.25".  The white backdrop was too plain for me, so we went a bit further with inking and used just a very light wash of Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  

For my sentiment, I stamped it in VersaMark ink of some vellum and head embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then wrapped the vellum around the sun placemat and adhered it with some scotch tape.  

To finish off my card, I used a heart enamel shape from this We R Memory Keepers Pack and of course, we must add a hint of shipper with the Wink of Stella Brush Tip Marker in Clear.   Used some foam adhesive to attach the placemat to my card base and that completes the card for today.

Hope you guys enjoyed this card!  I'll see you back here soon with another project featuring some great products from the store!
