In Honour of the Solar Eclipse...

Please scroll down for my SugarPea Sweet Peeks Week Day 1 post.



I had some fun yesterday making a solar eclipse card. Of course there are no sentiments made for this precise occasion since it happens so rarely so I made one from parts of several different stamps from various sets. It seemed appropriate to comment on the 'specialness' of the day.

I cut it using a Dotted Circle die and offset a shadow behind it.  I blended a 'sky' panel using It's a Boy, and spritzed it with water for interest and colour variation.
