How great is this...yesterday I was playing with my scoreboard practicing my 'sun-rays' technique. Little did I know how convenient that would turn out to be! LOL I sponged with summer sun to emphasize the rays and added some die-cut grass from Cheery Lynn. In keeping with my New Years Resolution to use 'old' stuff the image is from Mike's $1.50 bin from (last year) and the small greeting I found at a stamp show two years ago. I stamped the sheep with memento black ink and coloured it with prisma pencils and OMS. The sky was sponged using a torn paper towel because I think the results look a bit more natural than cutting a template. Once I cut out the main image I traced the outside of the die on black and used it as a mat.

This is stunning!! Your sun rays are amazing and your technique of using a torn paper towel as a template for sponging is one I will definitely try because your card proves that it works. Thanks for sharing that idea! Admire how you made the sheep image pop off the card with the dramatic black layer. This looks like a piece one would see in an upscale decorating shop in Sun Valley, Idaho. Very ritzy and elegant! TFS this fun ray of sunshine on a dreary winter day.
