Whilst sorting out my stamps for storage, I discovered a Paper Artsy plate that I bought second hand last year.
As we had just got back from a walk in the sunshine on the coast, I thought I would have a go using it.
I cut an ATC out of mountboard and applied and blended shades of yellow red and orange inks, to create 'heat'.
I stamped on the Sun image plate, then painted the 'petals' with Ecoline gold ink.
Once dry I used a Krylon 18kt gold pen on top give extra emphasis on the 'leaves' around the eye. To not only suggest the gold of the sunshine, but also of 'eyelashes'.
I finished it off by outlining the ATC with Krylon gold pen. It looks rather vibrant in the sunlight and really gleams and glitters with the golds.
