No, I'm not talking about the tasty sweets...my card is a rainbow starburst!!
I'll be honest, I'm not sure about this card yet. When I started I thought it was going to look 'awesome'...of course I did, why would I bother making it otherwise?! Well, I'm not sure awesome is the right word for it now, more 'hmmm, maybe?!' I'll leave it up to you to make up your own minds...
This card was inspired by the sketch challenge at STAMPlorations. I was a little bit liberal with the sketch, I turned it on its side and extended the starburst all the way round rather than the controlled rays of the sketch...I hope it still counts!!
So, here's the card...
I got this lotus flower stamp (set!) yesterday (sshhhh, don't tell him!! I don't think he can hear me from here?! He he!) and I couldn't wait to use it!! Isn't it pretty?!! I'm sure there are much better applications for it than this, but it's a start! ;)
It took a little while to work out where I wanted my 'rays' to go and I made little template using tracing paper to make sure the lines fell between the lotus petals. Once I'd cut them all out though it didn't take long to stick them all down and then heat emboss the lotus flower on top. A few rhinestones later (thank you to my lovely sister for the sparkly Christmas present - my family know me too well!) and I was done!
Here's the sketch...
As you can see, I also omitted the sentiment part too...it wasn't going to fit anywhere without ruining it so I left it out :) Thank you to Cornelia for pointing me in the direction of STAMPlorations - I hadn't come across this fabulous blog before! Another one to add to the list...I'm never going to keep up with all the challenges I want to partake in!!! ;)
ETA: Thank you to Carol for pointing out that my little card would also be eligible for A Blog Named Hero's Roy G. Biv challenge - woohoo! (I did have a look at the Just Us Girls challenge, however that was to choose three colours and a neutral - I have used a few more than that!!)
Thank you, as always guys, for stopping by my little blog...I hope you know I appreciate it ;)
