Today's post is all about Create with Connie and Mary color challenge.
I thought this was a particularly great color combination with so many possibilities. After playing around a bit, I ended up with a sunset/sunrise scene.To create the background I sponged the colors from top to bottom stopping at Daffodil Delight. To create the horizon I laid a piece of paper over the sponged sky and then beginning at the bottom sponged up. A few swipes over the mask created a straight line for the horizon.
I wanted to keep this fairly simple so I fringed some burlap ribbon and layered it beneath the card stock. The strands of burlap that I pulled out to make a great "bow". Really I just gathered it together in loops and tied a piece of burlap thread around it. I love how it gives the reeds and grass an earthy look.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
Card Stock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
