Hoot Hoot & Giveaway Friday !!!!

Hi Everyone!!!  I am here today on this wonderful Friday with a little Inspiration.  I thought I would share a card I made with you today.  Here's a sneak peek at part of my card:
I used some of the stamps from the new Sheena a Little Bit Scenic line .

Here is my finished card:


Here is a mini picture tutorial on how I created my Sunburst background:






You start out with the card stock, the ink colors you want your sunburst to be, it can just be one color or more.  I use my sponge daubers and a scrap piece of cardstock.







You need to decide where you want the middle of your Sunburst to be.  You then take the scrap piece of cardstock and lay it at an angle.  Then you take your dauber and add color along the edge of the scrap piece of cardstock.







Then you move your scrap piece of cardstock and using a different color, or the same color, you add that color next to the first color.













This is what it will look like after adding 2 colors.









This is what it looks like about half way done.













And finally what it looks like all finished.  You can have the back ground as big or as small as you would like it.  You can move your scrap piece of cardstock as little or as big as you want.

What a great technique. I will definitely try this
as there have been a couple of times I have wanted to
make that very thing but my idea did not
work out. It would be great also as background for
cross, stars, etc. TFS

Great card Dawn!!

tndj said...

I went and experimented with your project.
Used spectrum noir markers and the starburst came out
beautiful. Tried with ink (pigment) and looked good too.
Thank for the tutorial. Put a giant star in front and
it looks great. TFS

Maybe I'm a little bias - but isn't she awesome at this? All I can do is take pictures - she's the creator!
