Inspiration Challenge #9

Well… here I am using similar colours to my last post!!

This was what I came up with for Keesh's challenge this week. I was inspired by the painting in the picture, and wanted to try out a sunset sky with a silhouette stamp. Not sure exactly what I think of the outcome but here it is.

I have sponged Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose ink over some torn cardstock to create the layered cloud effect. The grass and flowers from the Inspired by Nature stamp set I have stamped over the top using Close to Cocoa ink. Then I've torn a piece of Cocoa card for the foreground. I love the texture that tearing adds to a card!


  1. Shelley... This is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS>
    I LOVE how you've created the sunset as your background.... The whole card is just beautiful.
