Stamping 411 has a new color inspiration challenge for February!
Here is my contribution:
I must admit that I was not too keen on this color combination, but that is what makes the challenge fun! I've been wanting to create some sunbursts using my Big Shot and Lattice die for awhile, and I thought this color challenge would be perfect for the project. Especially since I had "Real Red" and "Island Indigo" (actually closer to Tempting Turquoise) beer bottle caps sitting on my work desk, just waiting for me to be inspired to use them! I love the colors and the polar bear images found on these caps. They are from Alaskan Pale Ale beer made by the Alaskan Brewing Company. My husband saves the caps for me to use in my crafting. I think he gets a kick out of seeing my beer bottle cap art! (To view more bottle cap cards, please visit my postings here and here.)
To create the sunburst, cut out 4 lattices using different colored card stock. Add a little SNAIL adhesive in the middle of each one and layer one on top of the other. Add a brad or button (or bottle cap!) in the center to finish. Very easy!
Here is a photo of the beer bottle caps and some of the left-over pieces from the lattice die. These will be used for a future project as I seem to never throw anything away!
