Sunshine from a Brass Stencil


Do any of you still have those brass stencils you bought years ago? I kept mine, and decided at some point to try something new with them. I embossed this sun image and fussy cut it, then colored it with Copics and stuck it in my doo-dad box - unsure of what to do with it. When I saw the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #396, I went in search of something round and found this bright sun and decided it would work for this week's challenge. I layered it on a GMD die-cut stitched square panel of golden yellow, then matted with a panel of black. The flag banners were snippets of dsp, as well as the horizontal panel in gingham. The little red mini starbursts were cut with a SSS Bella Bloom die set and dotted with orange stickles for a little sparkle. The sentiment is from SNSS. This was all done on a very vanilla card base, but as usual - it shows up as white.


I really like this sketch and hope to create a few more cards with it. 

Thanks for stopping by and may your day be filled with brilliant sunshine!

Really beautiful sketch and love how you interpreted it with this fun sun! Your card looks so warm and bright and you made a great use of your snippets, too! The little starbusts are just perfect with the stickles!

Your card Looks fabulous Carol. I like everything about it. I have a big box of brass stencils for doing all sorts of stuff and haven't had them out for some time. I think you might have inspired me to get them out again. Barbxx
