Stampin'B Challenge - Song Title

This week's Stampin'B hostess is NancyRuth, and she asked us to create a card inspired by a song title. While I was not a child of the 60's (actually I'm a pre-baby boomer, having been born in 1941), but I love the music of the 60's -- and one of my favorite singing groups was The Fifth Dimension.

The musical Hair had many great songs, "Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In" being one of them. That's the song title I chose as the inspiration for my card. In case you are unfamiliar with the song, I've included some of the words.

I stamped the small sun from Mark's Finest Papers set, Hello Sunshine, with Versafine Black Onyx and then colored it with Copic markers. Using a punched scallop circle, I sponged in the clouds and the "glow" around the sun. As the second line of the chorus mentions stars, I used a scrap of starry paper for the top background.

Stamps - Mark's Finest Papers Hello Sunshine
Paper - Mark's Finest Papers Blue Skies, Dark Night Navy, Snow Storm Smooth; unknown DP
Ink - Versafine Black Onyx and Majestic Blue, Tim Holtz Distressed Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass
Accessories - Copic markers, Clear ep, Sponge dauber, Corner rounder, Ribbon, Scallop circle punch for cloud template
