Dreaming of a Pink Sunset (Four Seasons July Challenge)

Hello everyone and happy July! 

We are in full summer mode at the Four Seasons challenge and have another fabulous mood board to inspire you this month. As always the mood board is optional and you do not have to be inspired by is as Anything Summer Goes!

My inspiration actually came from the Flamingo floaties but my birds are Herons and not in floatie form :)

This is a new to me stamp set by Aall and Create - Heron - and I made a pink sunset scene for these gorgeous birds. 

I used the negative of a circle die to inkup the pink sun, after removing I used my MFT cloud stencil for some fun pink clouds. 

Next I stamped the Herons and "grounded" them by using a torn paper mask with more pink ink. The bulrushes are part of the same stamp set as are the 3 small words. The quote is from Just for Fun Rubberstamps, a company I used to design for many years ago but unfortunately they appear to be no longer in business :(

Before adhering to the black mat I inked the edges with pink ink and stamped the flying birds (from an older Hero Arts stamp kit). A little bit of sparkle was added around the sun.

Hi Ellie: Thanks for visiting my blog today and leaving me a comment. I always appreciate that. I also really enjoy your flamingo card; as I've always been a fan of stamped silhouette images. It's awesome.

Of course, I'd love to have you come play along at Word Art Wednesday. That's always a treat as well. Have a blessed week. - Current Sponsor: Doodlebugs
