Smack Down Starburst.

Over at Splitcoaststampers this week, the Monday Technique challenge called Smack Down.
Here is the technique described by Sabrina
"This is what the technique involves:
Ink your chosen stamp in a light colour. Stamp on the paper, and then continue stamping all round it, as if you were stamping off prior to cleaning your stamp.
When there's no ink left, ink the stamp and repeat the process. Cover as much of the card as you like. The repeated stamping fills up the card quite quickly.
Switch up to a different colour - if it's very dark, you may need to stamp it off once on scratch paper. Repeat the process. The repeated stamping fills up the card quite quickly."

I didn't use two colours - just the one 

I used an older Hero Arts stamp called Sunburst and as I seem to be on a bit of a blue phase... used some Catherine Pooler ink called Fiesta Blue.  I really love the background it produced.  I then die cut a circle and stamped the Sunburst in the middle.  I have some home made 3D dots and the teal one worked well in the middle.  The sentiment is white embossed - it's from a Catherine Pooler set.    A few sequins finished it off perfectly.

Fabulous Dawn - love that you re-used the background stamp as your focal point - an inspired use of the one stamp!
