Winter sunset

Hi everyone! Wow, what a week this has been! I can't wait for the weekend so I can get into the studio and create. The rainy weather should help there! I just got a few new stamps from Just For Fun and had fun playing with this one.


I stamped the image in Versafine ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next, I dug out my sponge daubers and created the sunset with pink and yellow chalk inks from Studio G and summer sky from Memento.

As you can see the stamped image is pretty big, so I cut it into thirds and then layered it with black before attaching it to a white card base.

I think I need to add a few small birds in the branches to give it a bit more interest. Thanks for stopping by and have a creative weekend!

OMG - this is beautiful - I thought it was a pic you had taken and used, and your sunset is amazing - did you do it on matte or glossy cs??
