Simon’s Wednesday challenge this week is Sunshine and also to use Simon stamps if we had them.  This little set called Circle Friends hasn’t gotten much use and it felt the perfect time to use it.

With the striped circle looking like a sun and such a sweet little bear and sentiment in that set this turned out “oh so cute.” I stamped the bear twice on water color paper and cut him out and popped up the top layer. He’s got a bit of glossy accents on his eyes and nose.

I used the Simon Sunshine die and cut it twice.  Once in black for a teeny little shadow and then in white.  I sponged three distress inks on for an ombre look and took that look over to the hearts to tie it together.  The top panel is embossed with a Taylored Expressions folder called Weathered.

It was fun to play with some sunshine because here in the northern highlands of Wisconsin we haven’t seen very much of that yellow orb.  A week of clouds and rain is predicted. Please send sunshine our way, if you would.  Thanks so much.
