Creating a simple sunset

Happy Friday everyone! I'm not sure if you checked out my blog post a few day back (here), the card with the airbrushed background. On that post, I shared a link to a "creating a sunset" tutorial on the Spectrum Noir Blog. Make sure and pop on over to check it out.

I used the eBrush to make the sunset panel on this card as well. Then I stamped the beautiful scene. As a reminder, you don't need to have the eBrush to create a simple sunset. The tutorial doesn't show using an airbrush. I was inspired by the tutorial to make the simple sunset - and to get out my eBrush and play around with it. Both ways turn out amazing! You can also experiment with different marker colors.

 I airbrushed the Spectrum Noir markers in this order: CR8, OR2, GB5, GB6

To stamp the scene, I used a 2 stamp sets from Crafter's Companion: Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic Silhouette Garden and Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy - Silhouette Wildflowers. I stamped off some of the ink, where you see the lighter shaded stamped images. I heat set the ink to make sure it was completely dry before stamping and embossing the final images. The embossing powder I used is called Black Sparkle from Ranger. Sooo cool!

The sentiment is from A Muse Studio, and is stamped with VersaFine Onyx Ink. Main image is mat on black cardstock, then 3D mounted. 3 little black rhinestones give a nice balance and connection to the image panel.

May your day be as beautiful as a simple sunset.
