There are few things in my opinion that are more beautiful than a morning sunrise. There is something about the first break of dawn and the promise of a new day that stirs my soul. Maybe it is the fact that I have another opportunity to accomplish a long list of to dos. Or maybe it is simply the perfect beauty of the Creator displayed in His creation.
Today, I have a new card to share using a couple of Our Daily Bread Designs' recent releases, Wildflower Silhouette Background and Miss You.
I started with a lemon yellow card stock base (5.5 x 4.25) and added a black CS mat.
***Seeds of Inspiration*** I used ODBD's Circle Ornaments Die to create a stencil for my sun. I placed the circle die cut in the middle of a white card stock panel and lightly sponged a soft yellow ink. I then added some soft pink and finished the top edge with a soft teal. I removed the circle die and lightly went back over the white circle with my yellow ink to soften it up a bit. I also added a bit of soft gray ink at the bottom where I knew my image would be "grounded." I inked up the background stamp (black) and added the image directly to my sponged panel. After stamping the image, I went back in and added ink to any areas that might have been missed.
I stamped my sentiment (also in black) on white card stock and used ODBD's Fancy Flourish Pattern Die to cut it out. I then inked soft lemon and gray over the sentiment. I added a bit of black and white baker's twine (with a fun bow) before placing the sentiment panel with dimensional foam.
