Well it's Tuesday and feels a long way off to the weekend! But its been a reasonable day so all is good.
Todays Card is using the Sunshine stencil and the next classroom stamps, Rise and Shine, the cockerel, and the swallows.
I love this stencil and had the idea to make a graduated colour wheel but try and still make it look like a sun. I picked out all my reds yellows and oranges from my collection of distress inks and decided on which I was going to use. I finally decided on nine and that meant that 2 arms would be coloured for each colour! I used the smallest calrity stencil brush to do most of the work but then used a make up sponge in the corners to really give good definition.
I then stamped the rice and shine words in the centre and the cockerel and swallows to complete the topper in black archival ink.
I brushed aound the edges with the stencil brush but without adding more ink just to take the white off the edges.
I mounted this onto black card then onto a cream 8 x 8 card blank. I finished it with 3 black gems in each corner.
I hope you like it
