Thinking of you, Silhouette Sunset

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a nice weekend!

I really fancied having a go at this weeks colour challenge at Less is More which is Sunset!

I had this idea straight away to use this silhouette stamp and colour a sunset background




I used:

Indigo Blu Silhouette Stamp
Clearly Besotted Butterfly Stamp
Sentiment stamp and gems from stash
Scallop scissors for the frame

I coloured the sunset and butterflies using Promarkers & Flexmarkers



I did a Google search for sunsets first to copy the sky's colours


I really like how the sunset turned out! And I do struggle with very CAS cards and resisting pretty papers and embellishments but I'm quite happy with this one!




Thanks for popping by :-)

  10. Wow Mrs, this is super fab!!!! I am sooo super impressed that you coloured this with promarkers. It looks totally fab. When you are feeling well enough you could do a step by step tutorial for your blog and share your brilliance. I had never even thought of trying to get this effect with pens - I've tried with distress ink pads and made a super old pig's ear ;-) Did I mention that I think the card is beautiful? Ahh, you cheered me up. Sending hugs, Jayne xxx
