It’s your big day!

For the sunburst, I first created a sunburst mask. Stamped a background from Wild West in Spicy Marmalade and then sponged over it with the same ink making it a little darker on the outer edges to give the illusion of sun’s rays. The little brown strips that you see – they’re exactly that – strips and not layers!

This is going into the August 2012 WMS Blog Party!
  • Stamps: WMS Wild West, Saddle up
  • Paper: PTI and TPC
  • Distress inks – spicy marmalade and walnut stain.
