Fun with a Sun - for Get Inky! Stamps
Happy Friday, everyone! It's my turn to post on the Get Inky! blog, and our theme is Summer Sun Fun. I've had this idea swirling around in my head for quite some time, and finally got to put it on to paper (and ink!). I'll show it to you first, then tell you how I did it:
I used glossy cardstock for my base, got out my brayer (I hardly ever use that thing), some multi colored ink called Kaleidacolor by Tsukineko, and brayered my background to make the sky. I wiped it off with a baby wipe while it was still wet to tone it down just a bit. Next, I needed a sun. I turned to my trusty Lifestyle Crafts circle dies and cut out two of them that were very close in size to make the ring. Then, I cut out a smaller, yellow circle for the middle. Using Lemon Tart Trendy Twine and daffodil 3 Girl JAM ribbon cut in 1/2 the long way, I tied them around the ring. The Get Inky! Stamp set, "Buzzing Bees" was used for the bees, the trail, and the sentiment. It is a very fun set to design with! I used Close To My Heart black archival ink on the bees and sentiment. And, that's my Summer Sun Fun card. Come join us at the Get Inky! Challenge with your own summer themed project.
