Twenty-Minute Monday - Sunset

This is a little late in the day, but at least it's before dinner - LOL! least in my part of the world!

Earlier this week, I got an email in my inbox from the wonderfully amazing Gretchen Barron. didn't come DIRECTLY to me, but to one of the groups in which I participate, but still...we're talking Gretchen Barron here people!

It seems the Utah Divas have just introduced a colour challenge on their blog. I decided to play along!
Believe it or not, this is REALLY a 20-minute card...less than that actually! The background only LOOKS like it took a long time to complete.

I used my sponges and my ink pads to sponge what I think is a pretty decent looking sunset. I had to cheat a bit and use some Pumpkin Pie because the sunset just didn't look right without it. Then, I stamped the single tall tree from Lovely as a Tree in Early Espresso. I don't know if you can tell, but I also added some Champagne Shimmer Paint all over the place.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Lovely as a Tree
INK: Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie
PAPERS: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake
ACCESSORIES: Sponges, Champagne Shimmer Paint

Happy Stampin'!
