|Thank you card featuring the Starburst technique and the Ombre technique with sentiment from One in a Million.|
Friday, July 12, 2013
Yesterday I showed you one of the cards we did at my techniques class this month...today I have another take on the Starburst Technique. Inspired by a design on Pinterest, this one is very much out of my comfort zone...
Very CAS and graphic, no? Not my usual style, but it was fun to try something different. To get the ombre effect I used the following colours, from lightest to darkest: Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. To create the starburst I cut my strips 1-3/4" wide and 5-1/2" long and then cut each strip diagonally from corner to corner. I left tiny white borders showing between each strip, partly because I liked the look of it and partly to make the five strips fit properly (sometimes necessity really IS the mother of invention!). I used Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon and Bermuda Bay Candy Dots to embellish this otherwise very plain design. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray and comes from the One in a Million stamp set. The gals at my class liked this card and I have to say so do I. Sometimes stepping out of your usual style is fun and inspires different, but fabulous things! Give it a try...I dare you!!
