July 8, 2013 Starburst Technique

Doodle Pantry Dophin image and DP, Spellbinders circle nesties, bubbles bling, wave punch

This is a "new technique" for me called Sunburst and there is an excellent tutorial here.  I decided to try it with the digi papers that come with the dolphin image and I am pleased with the result.  I am anxious to play with this technique more in the next few days.  I used the dolphin image precolored as I had a request for a  little boys bd and his favorite animal is a dolphin.  Thought it needed just a bit of bling but not to girly so after "searching" for my bubble blings finally found them and added a few here and there.  I have a coloring book of "sea creatures" and a new box of colors to send along with the card.  Challenges:

     Totally Gorjuss - anything goes with circles
     Jellypark Challenges - celebrate summer
     Addicted to CAS - water
     One Stop Craft - anything goes
     Sister Act Challenge - anything goes

Wow Shirley, this card looks amazing. I have seen this technique with ink, but never with paper. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
