Sun Above the Clouds - SSS New Release

Good morning! I think I've mentioned once or twice how much fun I've been having with the new Reason to Smile release from Simon Says Stamp, right? Well - I'm back to share ANOTHER card today using more of the goodies from this release! This one is all soft and dreamy - shouldn't all skies and clouds look this way?

This is yet another way to use the amazing Gingham Background - I have used it several different ways all ready (click HERE or HERE to see the other ways) - I love how versatile this one background stamp is! This time I heat embossed it in clear on watercolor cardstock, then added my watercolors - nice and heavy and wet, and let the colors just bleed together a bit. Such fun! I stamped and heat embossed the clouds in white on gray cardstock and the sentiment on black cardstock - both from the Cloudy Skies stamp and die set. I layered them all together on my card, then added a few clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off, before mounting that panel on a gray cardbase. 

If you are looking for any of the supplies I used on this card - you can find them all linked below. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
