The hardest thing about this card was listing the numerous colors of inks I used and getting a photo that didn't look like mush. I masked a little edge around my card then smeared most of the colors of TH distress inks that i own over the card in somewhat of a sunset design. Made a little horizon line with the edge of the black soot ink. I don't have any little ink spots - this would have been super easy if I had those. Stamped my image and then stamped a lighter version behind it. Ran the blue ink pad over the white edges of the card, and added a little white and gold gel pen. The direct to paper technique always makes me think of these silhouette scene cards. TFL, Francie

I have to agree with Sue, Francie! Direct to paper didn't work like this for me at all. What a gorgeous sunset and what made it so beautiful besides your fabulous colors is the highlighting you do. How you drew a horizon with an ink pad is beyond me! Absolutely beautiful!
