All Things Bright and Wonderful

Hello, hello, Crafty followers and friends.  I have been playing with P. Raspberry again because I needed some bright colours on this cold, wet, grey day.  Hope the sun has been shining on your little bit of the planet.  I spent quite a lot of time today aimlessly looking around blogland.  One blog led to another and I found some little gems and had quite a nice time looking at things from a different angle.  Not very productive in terms of project generation but some days, when simple things are difficult and difficult things are, it's nice to coast around hoping for a shot of inspiration.   I did stumble across a sentiment I liked and it fitted this card so the time was well spent.  

I have used a blending technique with Distress Inks that I saw on the Ranger site and have tweaked it a little to suit the project.

For my background I used Distress Inks P.Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn.  I used my blending tool to apply them in stripes on a piece of white card.  Then I cut the whole thing up into triangles, mixed them up and put it back together.  Paper patchwork.  I saw this sentiment and thought it would be perfect for this card.  I was a bit daring because I wrote it straight onto my card.  It's not perfect but it's personal and in this instance that's the most important.  I used a stamp from Pandoro's Filurer set.  I wrote Think Positive in the sign.  I liked the contrast between the bright background and the black and white Filurer.
