Blue Sunburst


Happy Saturday!  I haven't been feeling A-1 and it seems to have taken my 'mojo' with it so I was happy to see the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast today from a Flickr account of Ruth Bleakley who makes the most wonderful art journals.  The journal that inspired me is pictured below.
I began making my card by laying a stencil on my card front and stamping with various sizes of circle stamps in different colours of blue Distress inks.  As you may remember, one of my favourite ways to stamp circles is to use the eraser on the end of a pencil.  I then went back in and sponged on more blue in the negative space in a light blue so the circles could still be seen.  I stamped the sentiment then added it to my card by creating a faux banner .

Adding my card to these challenges:
 Stampin for the Weekend- ANYTHING GOES
Brown Sugar- ANYTHING GOES
Get Inky- CIRCLES
Stencils: Moxie Fab World- USE A STENCIL

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek.

Supplies:  stamps- Hero Arts/ stencil-Tim Holtz/ Distress inks/ Memento black ink

Cool card, Karen! I love circles, too. Glad to see this design using a sunburst stencil. I just got one and was trying to think of different ways to ink it up/fill it in. :)
