AYSI202 Sunset Colors

Happy Friday, peeps!  Yay, it's the end of a long week...only a few more days left of school and I am looking forward to trying to keep Cassidy busy all summer long, LOL!  It's time for another As You See It challenge, and Jan's chosen a wonderful color one for you:

No photo description available.

The challenge photo is gorgeous, isn't it?  But I really wanted to do something other than a floral or a butterfly, and I thought the Coral and Daffodil would make a great sunset.  I am a little rusty on my brayering technique, so I got our my little sponge brayers and went to work:

Although I would have liked to have blended my colors a little more evenly, I thought my first attempt didn't look too bad, so I went with it!  After blending the Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I ripped a little piece of scrap paper and laid it near the bottom and then brayered Mossy Meadow along the edge to create a hill.  I stamped some trees from Rooted in Nature on top and behind the hill, then mounted it on a piece of Mossy Meadow on which I had stamped the birch trees from the Winter Woods set:

My final addition was a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, and then it all went on a Naturals White card that was embossed with the Subtle EF.  The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches:

And since the Time Out challenge this week is Nature, I am entering it there as well!

We'd be thrilled if you would play along with our color challenge this week!  Check out all the samples at As You See It, and share yours too!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Beautiful card...I think you did a great job blending the colors...I have a hard time blending, but this looks like you do it all the time!! Have a great weekend.

I don't think you're rusty at all. This is gorgeous and good luck in the challenges. I love these colors so I'll probably play at AYSI.

I love a silhouette LeAnne .. but I don't think I've ever created one! Your sunset is gorgeous!! [and OH MY GOODNESS that inspiration photo!]

Lisa Elton said...

This is so pretty and peaceful LeAnne, well done! Our roles have reversed. You're trying to keep your granddaughter busy while you have her this summer and I'm trying to keep myself busy while I don't have mine LOL!!

Jen Brum said...

What a beautiful card LeAnne! I just love that sunset! It's just gorgeous!!! Love the texture of the background as well! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

I'm not sure who will be keeping whom busy this summer --my bet is Cassidy will be keeping YOU busy. :) I love your pretty sunset and it's always a treat to see you in the FMS gallery. Enjoy your Summer!

Just gorgeous! Love everything about this sunset scene from the ombre colors to the torn hillside. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Linda Callahan said...

Well I think your sunset is gorgeous!

Shona Chambers said...

Well, this couldn't be more perfect for our challenge!! Your sunset is spectacular and blended so beautifully (so jealous). Love the black silhouette of the trees against the 'glow'. And the cardstock you used for the base even has a natural look and feel to it. Its fabulous and I'm so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!

Nora Noll said...

This is breathtaking!! I LOVE the shading you did on the sky!!!

Nonni said...

I think there's nothing wrong in your blending, looks perfect to me! Love the beautiful scene you created and the CAS design of this card is very pleasing for the eye. Thanks for joining us at Time Out!
