Every Moment

As I was sitting infront of my computer looking outside at the sunset I thought about making a card with a sunset like the one outside. Even though it is still cold here the sun continues to shine and I can live with that. We are supposed to have + temps next week so I am holding out for that.

I really liked my layout from my last post and decided to use the same one for this card. I have not done alot of brayering so I thought instead of sponging like I usually do I would try brayering. I had some trouble getting it smooth but once I trimed it to the size I wanted I ending cutting most of what I did not like off.

I colored the image in neutral colors as I wanted to get more of  a shilouette look but it kind of faded with the brayering that I probably should have done first. (Lightbulb moment here). Once I was finished coloring etc. the image looked like it as floating as they say, so I decided that the bullrushes were in the ditch as many are here so I added some white squigges to look like they were in water in the ditch.


I layered my stamp image on black as well as the sentiment that comes with the stamp set. I had these sticky buttons that I had won at a scrapagandza and I thought it would look good against the background.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such nice comments.

Here's what I used:

Stamps:  Every Moment

Paper: Whisper White, Black

Ink: Black, Neutral Marker SU, Marnia Mist

Accessories: Non SU button.
