Starburst Card

Hero Arts "Starburst" stamp, Hero Arts "Truly Appreciated" (sentiment), SU Whisper White cardstock, SU Markers (Always Artichoke, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black), Archival Ink in Jet Black, glue pen, SU Glitter, dimensionals, scissors, Martha Stewart sequin (center), Me and My Big Ideas sequins (small), Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Pearl

This is my shameless case of Brandi Wiggins' card that was featured on Splitcoast last week. As you can tell...I LOVED it!!! And, so did many, many others. I think her card got over 2,000 hits. Her blog is here.

Well, I had to change a couple things, because I didn't have the stamp set she used. I would love to own it, but it is retired. So, I used "Starburst" and "Truly Appreciated" by Hero Arts. Looks almost the same, don't ya think?

The border is hand-drawn / hand-doodled. The starburst image was colored in with SU markers, then lightly sprayed with glimmer mist before stamping onto the cardstock. The glimmer mist got all over the card, which made a beautiful effect. Wish you could see it in person...so glimmery! Enjoy!

Wow, this is a fabulous card in its own right!! I love the fun colors you chose and the fun colored-in border. I bet that glimmer looks awesome IRL!
