Today had lots of puffy white clouds and sun, sun, sun! I am loving it :) Here is a card that reminds me of this weather.
I started this card by stamping the clouds in three different colors of distress inks. I used a sticky note to stamp two extra clouds on and then fussy cut them out to use as masks. Then I took an oval die to cut out a window in a top folding card and put the clouds behind it.
I stamped the sentiment with versamark on some scrap cardstock and embossed it with clear powder, then took distress inks and blended over the background. I wiped off excess ink from the sentiment with a tissue and trimmed it down. The sun was stamped and then colored it in with zig clean color markers and a waterbrush. To give the sun some sparkle and shimmer, I used a wink of stella pen to cover the whole stamp.
After fussy cutting it out, I used some foam tape to adhere it to my card and glued the sentiment on. You can see some of the shimmer here.

Stamps: Hero Arts - Sun Showers; SSS - Happy Day
Inks: Distress Inks, Wink of Stella, Zig clean color markers
Dies: SSS - stitched ovals
