Abstract Sunrise

Hello Again! Here's another card utilizing the Abstract Background technique described in my last post. This one was made for my Dad, so I tried not to get too "frilly" and kept it on the simple side.

I started this scene first by stamping/tapping a straight line across most of the Whisper White cardstock with the Bashful Blue inkspot. I added a post-it note above the horizon so that my random stamping with the Bashful Blue inkspot wouldn't cross into the sunrise portion above. After making the water by tapping the inkspot randomly around, I removed the post-it note and reapplied it on top of the newly-created water. This was done to protect it from the sunrise scene that was made next... The sunrise was stamped by tapping the inkspots from lightest color to darkest using Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal, Pale Plum, Almost Amethyst and Ballet Blue inkspots. I removed the post-it note, then used my Close to Cocoa inkspot to create my cascading hillside down the left side and across the bottom of my scene. I finished up by stamping the sentiment & deer from the Nature Silhouettes stamp set, and a floral selection from Pocket Silhouettes in Chocolate Chip ink. This was matted with several layers of cardstock, white brads were inserted, then the whole thing was adhered to the cardfront.

I hope you enjoy my additional sample of the Abstract Background technique. It really is easy to create, and I love how unique it looks! I have one last sample to show you tomorrow, so I hope you get a chance to drop in...

With my kids starting school next week, I need to go do my part in stimulating the economy with some back-to-school purchases! Cha-ching!!! ~8)

Have a super weekend!!
