CTMH--Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- My Sunshine


Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for April 2013- featuring My Sunshine

My Sunshine, a set of 8, is a fun, fun stamp set!   If you have come here from Dawn's Blog you're on the right path.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete hop list at Helen's Blog!

Have you tried the Puddle Pad technique?????
First, layer a couple baby wipes on a large block, then take your reinkers (I used Creme Brule, Sunset, Smoothie and Lagoon.)  and randomly drip them on the wipe, forming a large blob of color at least as big as your stamp.  Then take your stamp, press down firmly to ink it up, and stamp. On the circle in the middle, I also swiped it a few times in the "puddle pad" which gave it a streaky distressed look. 
Look how fun it is:

My card today is based on the Deconstructed Sketch #95. I thought the Dotty For You Papers would go perfect with the sketch.  I added some frayed burlap down the middle and added My Sunshine image on top!  At the bottom corner, I stamped the quote from My Sunshine. 
I also created this Sunshine card, posted last month:
