A Different use for Rays

I recently won this great stamp called "Here Comes the Sun" by Market Street Stamps simply by leaving a comment here on the Scrap Review blog. How great is that?! If you aren't subscribed, you should be! They give honest reviews of all the newest products on the market and have frequent giveaways, so check them out! I love that they give pre-CHA reviews too!
I don't know why, but when I looked at the stamp I wanted to do something other than yellow sun rays, so I got out my Memento inks and just dabbed colors on the stamp in shades of purple and blue. It almost looks like an explosion of some sort, but I was happy with the way it turned out. I've been playing with this stamp a lot and will have more to share with you soon. This stamp covers the entire card front and then some (which I LOVE) but I trimmed the image down after stamping to mount it on a bashful blue card base. The sentiment is from SNSS Poppies & Greetings. Memento inks used were Danube Blue, Grape Jelly, Lulu Lavender, and Summer Sky.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
