SUNSHINE

You probably know by now I'm just crazy about recuperating plastic wrappings and playing with them. The base for these cards are exactly that: pieces of plastic I cut with my guillotine,their sizes are 5 in. x 4 in.so they fit in a standard envelope.

I used acrylic paint to stamp the flip-flops onto the sheet of plastic and black Stazon for the word:sunshine.The same paint was used on the edges of the white piece of paper to add more dimension.

There's a wallet size picture inside the card and the embellishments were done by stacking up 3 different cercles using pop-up glue dots:

Well now I'm off to the mailbox!Hope your day is full of SUNSHINE.

I must say that as a recipient of one of these cards, sunshine is an excellent title because they exude warmth. Memories of good times shared and thoughts of the time and effort put into making this piece of art sets the good vibes in motion.

Mucho Gusto!
