Here is a little different inspiration for today -
Angie went this direction with the sun and the trees-
This card was a little difficult for me. I used the Fun Stampers Journey Fun Rays Die. I then added shade to the rays using Banana Cream ink as well as a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle marker. The stamp is Fun Stampers Journey Stay Wild. I stamped the image on white cardstock and cut it with the Journey Circle dies. I then used Spectrum Noir coloring pencils and gamsol to color some of the image.
Sue choose to use the road and sun here-
Using Post-It tape, I masked off the above the green grass area and each side of the road separately to add peeled paint distress ink with an ink blending tool. I was hoping for a random look with darker and lighter areas. I then moved the Post-It tape along the edges of the green grass and applied black soot distress ink with an ink blending tool for the road. Then I moved the Post-It tape from above the green grass to onto of the green grass and then added another mask, cut out from half of a 2.5” circle. I added spiced marmalade distress ink with an ink blending tool around the half circle and then beyond that I used faded jeans distress ink for the night sky. Once I removed the half circle mask, I added mustard seed distress ink to the “sun”. I felt that the card still needed something, so I added the foliage using the top of one of the stamps from Penny Black’s Sprig stamp set. The sentiment is from SU’s Rev Up the Fun stamp set..
I have really enjoyed the cards this week and think that Sue and Angie did a wonderful job with all of the challenges. - Denise
