Taylored Expressions - You Are My Sunshine... 8-)

Hi all! And a Very Happy Friday to you! 8-) Hope you all had a Wonderful week so far and are getting ready for a fun weekend!.. 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Walking on Sunshine EF, along with TE's Happy Heart Stamp set and some fun with watercolor embossing too...8-)
I had some fun with this Awesome new Embossing Folder! & I just Love the watercolor look it got with it too! I pretty much just  followed Miss Taylor's How To's she included in her post HERE.  After stamping TE's Happy Heart Sentiment on my Watercolor CS, ( I recommend using StazOn Ink for this, lol I did not this time by accident and got a little bit of discoloration from the sentiment.. lol lesson learned ;-)... )  I inked up the Walking on Sunshine EF with a combination of Scatterered Straw, Wild Honey, and Rusty Hinge Distress inks, added a few spritzes of water with my mini mister and ran it thru my Cuttlebug.
Next I added a few touch ups with my water brush and some Rusty Hinge Distress ink to add just a little more definition here and there. When it was all dry, I cut and matted it up with TE's Candy Corn Premium CS & adhered it to my TE's Buttercream Frosting Premium CS Card base. And to finish it all up I added a sprinkling of sequins just for fun! 8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Wonderful day & Thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)
