delicata brightens my day too (AEIU)

I know lots of you have already met Delicata gold ink.  I have now too (more NBUS). Wunnerful schtuff eh?

Also NBUS (never-before-used-schtuff - in my case ordered in the US, delivered to my folks', picked up by me during summer holiday there and lugged home in my suitcase.  Or DH's.  Or DS's.  Or DD's. Get the picture?) was the Bright Days stamp set from Avery Elle.  Love the quality of those stamps.  Here's what I did with the two NBUSes.

My middle initial is "L".  Stands for "liberties".  As in I take a lot of liberties with sketches.  But the elements are there.  I just chose to do it all with the one stamp set.  And Delicata - muy bonita.  But a poop to photograph.

Swiped Salty Ocean (how appropriate - oh it came home in the suitcase too now that I think of it) for the water.  Masked the water and stamped the center of the sun.  Masked the center and stamped the rays, some yellow and some gold.  Stamped over the center with that oh-so-cool sunburst in gold.  Masked the strip on my cardbase and stamped with more gold using only the sunburst stamp.  That's all folks.

Supplies for you brighten my day:
Paper:cardbase Papermania
Stamps: Avery Elle!
Ink : Jenny Bowlin, Salty Ocean Distress, Delicata gold
Other: Post-it to mask, enamel dots MME

Cool! The sun pattern on the strip reminds me of a slinky spiral.
