Today's card features the sunburst technique in blues (with a hint of green).
I was surfing around some popular sites for sketches/ideas, when I came across Pals Paper Arts (which I've known about for quite some time, I just haven't played along in a while) and what should appear but a colour challenge using Pool Party, Island Indigo and Whisper White.
Since I already had some Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper out on my workspace for some cards I'm featuring next week on the blog, I thought it would be great to play along!
I started off with a base of Pool Party Cardstock and added a layer of Island Indigo. The Whisper White layer was mostly covered in Blooms & Bliss DSP using the Sunburst (or Starburst) technique depending on who you ask. :)
I cut the DSP into strips ranging from 1" wide to 2" wide and then cut them on the diagonal to form triangles. The triangles form the sunburst!
I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party onto Whisper White Cardstock and punched it out using the 2" circle punch. The edges were sponged and some doodling and bling were added before I attached it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inside was stamped with a sentiment from Happy Happenings and sponging/doodling were added as well.
What do you think?
