SSS - Creating Your Own Overlay

Happy Monday Sweet friends! It's Jessi here from Kissin' Krafts. Today I am sharing with you, how to create your own overlay. I love the sunburst trend, but am limited with supplies to create it.

Sweet Stamp Shop's Dia De Los Muertos stamp set is used on this creation:

Using a long triangle die, I created the overlay by cutting out a number of 'rays'.

Time to add some color to the sunburst. I really wanted it to shout with colors. 
So starting with red, I also added a few oranges and yellows to create the ombre coloring.
 I blended the colors onto the paper using a piece of felt.

This was my first time to use an overlay. I think I am in love! Cannot wait to see what other designs I can come up with!
