Welcome! Yesterday I posted a scrapbook page using the Decorative Overlays as a background for my photos. I was intrigued by the starburst overlay as it reminds me of sun breaking through a layer of clouds. I tried to get that brilliant, dazzling color for the stamp brush but just couldn't achieve the look I wanted. So I chose to use Pixie Pink which I often see in sunrises or sunsets. This overlay has such an appeal to me that I didn't want to clutter it up so I added just a sentiment and a bow. I recolored the bow with Pixie Pink trying all the colors that the Knots and Ties come with as the starting point. Surprisingly, the Pacific Point bow was the one that actually gave me the Pixie Pink color. The rest of them were too light and only the shadowed areas turned decidedly pink. Lesson learned…when using the recoloring function of MDS2, keep trying options until you get as near the result you want as possible! Oh, yes, I tried several different card stock colors for the background and found that Basic Grey gave the best effect.

    I like that one very much. I don’t think I have that overlay. I haven’t ordered anything for about two weeks so watch out Tuesday!
    I”m going to have to look for that Pixie Pink. I don’t remember ever seeing that one.
