Hi everyone. Back with a different style of card today. Haven't done a sponged (or brayered) scene for a long time. :) Love the bright and vibrant colours of these Distress Inks and they blend so beautifully.
I started by masking off a small circle for my sun. Then I sponged the sunset colours starting with the lightest shade (yellow --- which eventually was covered with brown), medium orange and then bright orange. I removed the mask for the sun and sponged more yellow over top. Then I ripped two pieces of scrap paper and used them for my mountain ranges. I sponged over the bottom of the panel with medium brown and then added the second mask and just sponged the very bottom with dark brown. I stamped the tree silhouette and sentiment in black and mounted the panel onto my card front. Fun and easy card to make! :)

I'm going to enter this into the CAS-ology - Tropical challenge as I think these sunset colours are definitely tropical.
