Gazing into the sunset....



This card was made for the Ready Stamp Challenge http://readysteadystamp.blogspot.com/ the ingredients were: sun, yellow, ribbon, triangle, acetate. I have to admit when I first saw that I thought I can't do that. Firstly I don't have a sun anything...I am not the biggest fan of yellow...how are you supposed to use a triangle, and then on top of all that there was acetate!! So I decided immediately that it was not for me!........the trouble was then it totally got into my head, realised that I could create a sun using inks , and a masking technique to create the sun, which is also yellow!! 2 ingredients down..... then I remembered I had these little acetate tags left over from a really old kit - think it was Kanban, and they could be attached by ribbon.....4 ingredients down....the triangles were my nemesis in the end, but I have used 2 as little photo corners....and eventually I had the card!....

I have used, "we are memory keepers - nonsense papers" for the background. to create the sunset I used "brilliance inkpads - Sunflower yellow, crimson copper, and lavender and Ivy (for the foliage)" the stamp is " Rubber Stampede - best friends" and the little foliage stamp is from "Stamptivity" I have used prima flowers, peel off dots and leaves, and a little peel off butterfly, a couple of buttons.

I also think this card fits 5 challenges which is a record for me! the first as mentioned above then:
