RSS Challenge 2

Time for another Ready-Steady-Stamp challenge. This time the recipe is as follows:

1: Sun
2: Yellow
3: Ribbon
4: Shape - Triangle
5: Acetate

and of course, use at least one stamp, no digital and no cute!
Here is my entry - it's the second attempt, as the first ended up looking very messy and almost impossible to photograph - too many dangly bits and far too many colours! When I was doing my Art "O" level (that dates me) my art teacher banned me from using colour as she said if I added colour I was guaranteed to fail as I had no sense of restraint. Hopefully I've improved a bit since then, but I can still get a bit carried away with colour sometimes.






Anyway, this is a small square cream card, the front has been chopped off to make a reverse-opening triangle. Back and front have been stamped in shades of yellow and orange with small stamps from Impression Obsession and Paper Artsy.The back has been overlaid with an acetate panel, which was run through the Cuttlebug with a floral folder and coloured in with Promarkers. The front has grosgrain and floral ribbons stuck on to represent sun rays and a garden respectively, and the sun image was made with Nestabilites shapes cut from different yellow / orange cards and attached with a sun shaped yellow eyelet. Hope you like it!
