I managed to place the image so that the setting sun came within the yellow area, and I stamped it using my Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and cut it out using a Crealies Pierced Rectangle die. I watercoloured the sun and the area below using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow ink and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and some Broken China Distress Ink for the darker parts of the sea applied using a waterbrush. I then blended some Stormy Sky over the top portion of sky to darken it a bit and added some more Spiced Marmalade and Sunshine Yellow around the sun using a blending tool, and also inked around the edges to finish.
I backed the piece with another piece of card to raise it up a bit and added it to a 7" x 5" card and added the sentiment using the Nocturne ink and heat embossed it with WOW EmbossingPowder.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
Note: Before I go I wonder if anyone has had the same problem I have had with the new Blogger format. I have done one or two posts successfully, but this one went wrong at the bottom where I put the list of challenges, and for some reason it would not let me single space them. I tried for ages to fix it and thought I had when I followed a second challenge title on the same line as the last and pushed it forward until it all dropped down on to the next line, and did this each time until I had everything looking like it looks now, but when I checked on preview it was completely all over the place. I didn't like the look of it double spaced and so I have gone back to the old Blogger. I would love to know if anyone else has had this problem and if so if you managed to fix it.
