What a Day!

Just a quick post to link this card to the SK digis linking party.  Sonia Kertznus is so generous with her digi stamps.  I have gotten several freebies from her, but I've yet to link to her party, so I made this card for that reason.
Last weekend, while on a scrapbook retreat, I was trying some masking techniques.  I made this card base using a circle of adhesive cardstock, glossy cardstock, a brayer, and multi-colored inks.  After I brayered it, I didn't like the starkness of the white showing through, so I got out a waterbrush and some yellow ink and colored it in to make a sun.  Then, I gave up, not knowing what to do with it from that point on. It sat on my desk for a few days.  Yesterday, I decided to do this with it:
The base seemed like a great background for this pretty SK Digi bouquet, colored with Copic markers. I apologize for the glare of the glossy cardstock.  Nature of the stuff, I'm afraid.  I used a little Lemon Tart Trendy Twine and a sentiment from the "A Dog's Life" stamp set by Raisin Boat.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
