alltogethereveleyn - Stampingbella

Hi and I hope you are doing well.
This is going to be a very quick and short post because I am running behind.  I should have had this posted a couple days ago but after being away for five days, I'm finding it difficult to catch up. Slowly but surely....
This card is something different from me.  I've liked the Danielle Donaldson stamps since Stampingbella began carrying them but I was never too sure what I should do with them since I tend to gravitate more towards the cutesie images.  The theme last week at the Stampingbella blog was to make your own background so I immediately thought of the alltogetherevelyn stamp I have and doing a sunburst background. Somewhere in this craft room of mine is a Tim Holtz sunburst stencil which I searched high and low for but did not find so off I went to find one for my Silhouette cutting machine.  Once it was cut, all I did was use sponge in a straw coloured Tim Holz distress ink and the background was done.  After colouring the image, I cut it out with scissors (yeah... I still fight with that cutting machine to cut around images) and glued it down. A few Kennedy Grace Creations Honeybee sequins and the card was finished.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
