FM76 Sketchy Starburst

Time for another Friday Mashup.  It's Rita's turn to challenge us.  Rita has been back for a week, but with her hosting the challenge, it's official.  Welcome back, Rita!!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with the "Sketch".
  2. Or Make a project with "Starburst Technique".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project using the "Sketch and Starburst Technique".
More My Digital Studio for me.  I know... you're getting sick of it.  I'm almost done; I promise!

I was actually able to mash it up here.  I elongated the pennant punch to create the starburst effect and filled the punches with contrasting paper.  The trim of circles actually comes from the template in the Sweet Shop download - isn't it cute?  I really love the effect of the starburst technique, but I can't get away from trying to make a horizon scene out of it.

MDS Elements: Stamps: Rough Type Alphabet; Papers: Simple Snapshots DSP, Sweet Shop DSP; Color Palette: Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White; Accessories: Pennant punch, Sunny Day clouds, Downtown Grunge frames, Sweet Shop hearts, Sweet Shop jelly bean brad, Whisper White straight stitch; Font: Clipper Script.

There's something fun in the MDS world - Stampin' Up has started a weekly challenge on  What fun!  As soon as I saw it, I had to play along!

This is a page depicting my daughter's first day of kindergarten and uses this week's sketch.  I had another color scheme in mind, but ended up pulling colors from the photos.  I think it is hilarious that she put Piglet down for a nap, eye covers and all!

Great pages, Heidi! I'm glad you shared how you did the starburst in MDS. I was wondering. :) I might have to try it since I'm now obsessed with that program; they really did great with the new version!
