Let the Sun SHINE!

Fabulous, sweet sunshine! Oh our days are now simply glorious with daylight through midnight and dusk continuing through the wee hours. Oh how I love filling those "extra hours" with play!

I just had to begin this season with my new Stampendous sunshine stamp for this week's sketch challenge. I stamped the sun on acetate with Stazon ink. I really wanted to show off Stampendous's glitter on the sun. Glitter also adds bling to the distressed sentiment as well as the far upper right corner of sentiment's background. I had lots of fun playing with some new distress ink colors including the background resist.

Stampendous sketch challenge

The Stampendous blog is featuring a sketch challenge each week.

This week I tried a resist technique with their new wildflower sprigs clear stamp set. I used their new mixed set of glitter and fluff to add a little bling to the flower embellishment.
