Sunset

Are you a follower of F1? Did you follow yesterday's race? wasn't it a good one!    Cracking race and brilliant result for Mr. Button.      British team 3 day eventing did not finish quite so well but a bronze  medal is not to be sniffed at.

Non of which has anything to do with this Sunset Scene.    looking around at yesterday's challenges One caught my eye, Make it Colourful, with a theme of Sunset with Clouds.   All the stamps are Tanda, the tree from Safari set 1, setting sun from Background set 1 and the birds are from their Aqua stamps.   Stamped and masked the tree, cotton wool with Versa watermark dotted over the sky and then brayered over with Big and Juicy sunset pad.    Then the sun stamped in, mask removed and piece brayered over again.   Orange Sakura fills the areas of the tree that the ink had not reached.    Black Sakura extends the horizon.    Big and Juicy Foliage used for the land, tree given a little shadow.   Birds stamped into the sky, and the clouds given a darker top using the cotton wool and dark end of the sunset B&J pad.

Being rather pleased with the outcome am sharing this with.

  11. Wow Zoe this is amazing. I read your comment about my flying man.... yes hes stamped directly onto the scene.... he was first.... i had the tag shape drawn so i knew where to put everything... hes not stuck on later... i swear on my twins lives.... now thats the best i can do!..... actually if you click on it to look.... you can see where i wasnt quite lined up with the mask.... so i used a little 'sunlight'!
