Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge


Happy Monday, my friends! =) It's time for a new Picture Perfect challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog. Here is this week's inspiration photo.


Here is my interpretation.


I love the beautiful setting sun and the color contrast in the photo and used them as my inspiration. I did tone one tone stamping on the card base using images from Reflections set.


For the "sun" part, I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using a Hexalongs die, scribbled a couple of colors from Inktense Blocks then added water with a aqua brush. The sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge. Here are the links:
