There is nothing more beautiful than a sunset. A fall sunset is exceptionally pretty against a tree lined foreground. This sunset is created by using your favorite inks and will last a long time in the eyes of the viewer.
Now add a darker brown to the bottom using the blending tool again.
Clean off your craft mat making sure there is no ink left on the surface that will contaminate the next set of inks.
Keep the ovals positioned on the background piece.
Add some orange ink above the ovals.
Next, add pink ink into the orange by working in from the top and sides of the paper.
Add purple along the edges and slightly inward making sure to leave some of the orange and pink showing.
Darken just along the edges using a black ink pad and the blending tool.
If there are any white spaces along the horizon line carefully use the light brown ink and the blending tool to move up from the bottom and along that area to cover it. Repeat the dark brown ink at the bottom of the cardstock if necessary adding more color as you’d like.
Layer the patterned paper and mat onto the card base and then add the background using a tape runner to adhere them.
Add the trees making sure to stagger them so that they are offset for a more natural wooded look. Use a glue pen to attach them.
Finish it off by stamping a sentiment onto the card.
Enjoy a beautiful sunset with someone you are thinking of with this easy to do technique. Use it to send someone some warms thoughts and smiles by making it into a “Thinking of You” card or give it to someone you’ve shared a beautiful sunset with by including a handwritten note. However you use this card, it’s sure to bring beautiful memories, as well.
