Sunset By The Sea

My family and I are preparing for a trip to the ocean in a couple weeks.  I was going through some of my photos of cards that I created but have not shared and I came across the one I am sharing today that gets me excited about our upcoming vacation.  I am really looking forward to the sunset ocean views.  Take a peek:

I created my sunset by using a post it note to mask off my horizon line and sun, then sponged red, dark orange, orange and yellow inks.  After my sponging was finished I then stamped my sea image in versa fine black ink.  I used a white gel pen to add some highlights.  I used a Fiskers border punch along the bottom and accented with some black pearls.  Rather than matting my image with black, I added a layer of white which I think makes the image pop a little more.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and that you are enjoying your summer so far.  It is sure going by so quickly...

So pretty Janette. Love the sponging with the silhouette images.
