Watercolor Sunset

I am still playing with the Waterfront stamp set and today's card was created with a sunset in mind.  The Double Challenge for CAS 274 seemed to have the perfect colors and sketch for creating a sunset.

I did not have any of the exact colors from the challenge, so I used Grapefruit Grove, Crushed Curry, and Smoky Slate.  I thought those colors captured the sunset look I was trying to capture somewhat.  Of course, nothing can actually capture the brillance of a sunset, but this is my attempt at artistic interpretation.

I used the stamps from the Waterfront stamp set to create the mountains and sun on a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock.  Then I sponged the sky with Grapefruit Grove and stamped the clouds with Smoky Slate.  The cardstock detail at the bottom of the sunset piece was a strip of Basic Black fussy cut into a curved shape.


Make sure you head on over to CAS 274 and WWC172 to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
