I decided to attempt a more graphic looking card. I made a few mistakes along the way, but I think it out nicely in the end.
I used this Hero Arts/Studio Calico background image as my focal point. I directly painted on the stamp with Distress Inks which was then spritzed with water. I brushed more color on the stamped image if I thought the rays needed a little more intensity. To add a little more pizzazz, I sprayed tons of Mr. Huey’s “Shine” on the image. The “sun” is a combination of Spellbinders Dies as well as my stash of circle punches. And to give it just a bit more sparkle, glitter was added as well. To finish off the card, I used this appropriate Ali Edwards sentiment.
Thanks so much!
