Thought I would try another sunset card (CAS279). I have loved looking at both Heather Telford's and Theresa Momber's tutorials for silhouette/scenic cards and used some of both of their techniques here. Masked off the area of the card for my scene. Tore a post-it note to create an irregular mask and used this to create the hills - blended each hill with a different color of ink. Stamped the grass onto the layer in the foreground. Masked the sun w/ post-it also, and then added layers of color and blended till I was satisfied. Took off the sun mask and lightly dabbed color on the sun, so it would not be such a stark contrast. Stamped the silhouette leaves in Walnut distress ink and then the sentiment in black. I don't like to have all my sunset cards be sympathy so I thought this sentiment could work for more occasions.
