I had tons of fun playing with the colorburst on  the  Ken Oliver Mixed Media 6x6 Artboard

I used a stencil and the following colours to create the delicious background:

Violet Color Burst 
Ultramarine Color Burst


I stamped the background with the following stamps:

Open Brushed Heart - Embossed in Gold
You Make Me Happy (sentiment)
Umbrella Silhouette- I paper pieced the umbrella, fussy cut the image and mounted on foam dimensionals.
Lastly, I added the Die Cut "Love" in gold to compliment the embossing on the heart


Be sure to hit all the spots on the hop for a chance to win~
