Before I show you my card for the day, I want to announce the winner from my blog for the recent Karen Burniston DT Blog Hop. LYN CHRISTIAN is the winner of a $25 gift certificate from Karen Burniston - KB Riley LLC. Congratulations, Lyn! Happy shopping!
Now, on to my latest card. I recently watched a Youtube video on how to ink blend a sunset using Distress Oxide inks. Kristina Werner showed several different color combinations for creating a sunset, and I chose Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch -- and created what I thought was an acceptable background. Of course, I then had to make a card! I hunted through my stamps and found something I thought would work -- two palm trees with a hammock strung between them. I confess I don't know who made the stamp; it was loose in my drawer of tree stamps. I colored the trees and hammock "gently" with Copic markers, so as not to detract from that sunset sky.
For the inside, I decided I wanted to have a little fun, so I used the Karen Burniston Palm Tree Pop-Up and found a sentiment I thought complemented the feel of the card.
I am so glad I found that video. I will definitely be trying that technique again.
