SIP Challenge #51 – Sunsets

Good Morning!  It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  Here is the inspiration for the challenge

SIP Challenge #51 - Sunsets

I absolutely love this inspiration. There isn’t anything more beautiful than a sunset except maybe a sunrise! Here is the card I created

Distressed Sunset

I started with a Basic Black card base and followed with layers in Only Orange and Yellow.  For my card front I used a piece of photo paper and sponged the background using the following Tim Holtz distress inks – Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Pickled Raspberry, Festive Berries, Shaded Lilac, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire.  For the ground I took a piece of torn paper and  placed it just below the sunset and then using StaZon black ink stamped directly on the paper creating a landscape. Next I stamped the tree image from Penny Black using StaZon black ink.  To finish I stamped the sentiment from the SU set Gifts of Kindness in yellow chalk ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my creation this week and if you are inspired to play along with us I can’t wait to see what you create!

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂
