Today I have an entry for Retro Sketches #99. Here is the lovely sketch from their website. If you click on the picture below you can reach their website as well.
When I saw this layout I knew I wanted to play along. The little circular cut-out really reminded me of the sun or halo of light. I immediately went to work and here's what I created:
I used my Mama Elephant Lights Out stamp set and stamped the different light bulb elements on vellum. I've never tried this before and it seemed to work out. I had to heat set it prior to adhering it to the card. I picked a rather bright and colorful background. I wanted that to mimic rays of light. I finished off with the sentiment. I had to cut off the word shine on the stamp to make it 2 separate lines. I finished off with some My Mind's Eye enamel dots to add some color to the white panel.
I hope you got inspired today. Keep on crafting :)
