Hello Journey friends,
Today I'm sharing a card that I was thinking about all the while I was making my President's Day card. I wanted to use the beautiful flag image as sun rays- or a spotlight and was planning the design in my head the whole time I was making the other card.
It's funny how my mind works- I can't do two things at once (chew gum and walk, drive and talk, type and listen) but somehow I can be planning a new card design while I'm making another card. I'm not really sure what that means about my creative connections in my brain I just know that I'm constantly making connections and thinking, thinking, thinking...
I used the Direct-To-Stamp inking method to ink just the stripes on the AMERICAN SUN stamp with Lemon Drop ink. I stamped it smack dab in the middle of some Whip Cream cardstock. After that, I stamped the sentiment from the January Kit of the Month (not available in the catalog for a few more months) over those rays.
After finishing the stamped panel, I trimmed it up and mounted it on Black Licorice cardstock. Then mounted that panel onto Lemon Drop cardstock.
Stamping the Star from the January Kit of the Month was next. I used Whip Cream cardstock and Black Licorice ink again. I cut out the star image (I would have used the star dies but I don't have them yet!) and added some Journey Glaze onto the black sripes. While that dried, I added some black Journey Twine onto the card panel before mounting it to the Black Licorice card base.Sparkle Dust to the sun rays, opalescent sequins (from the Journey Sequins Blue Skies set) with some Orange Stickles.
