Masked Sunburst

Ok I wasnt quite finished with this Sunburst technique (Just Add Ink Challenge) Ive been kind of inspired by the amazing people who can make gorgeous card using only One Layer. I didn’t quite manage that but my Sunburst pattern is made up of only ONE piece of card and used 3 stamps, 3 sponges,  3 inkpads and 2 sheets of BIG sticky notes.

My daughter even had to run her fingers over the surface to feel it was only one layer but thanks to some nifty stamping, masking and sponging you get an awesome effect. I based the colours on the Pals Paper Arts Colour Challenge 194

The stamp sets I used included two new ones from the Occasions catalogue, Petite Petals and Spiral Spins both of which good choices for the budget conscious and are useful for a variety of cards. I stamped 2 images from the Spiral Spins and one of the flowers from Petite Petals, punched them with corresponding punches then layered then for a very chic effect. The other stamp sets I used were Teeny Tiny sentiments and Papaya Collage.

Sunburst Surprise

I had a little bit of fun with the Sunburst technique which is the one I’m teaching at my Coffee and Cards class on Wednesday. It also happens to be the Just Add Ink Challenge this week too! I needed a birthday card for a wee boy and I saw a couple I kind of liked, one by Veronica Kettle and some punch art by “the Crafty Owl”. Oh I miss Punch art … sigh…. but I changed this up a bit to make it mine. He’s an awesome wee guy and only a little scary!
