Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Jennifer McGuire Ink Blog....wow, what an awesome new discovery...no shortage of inspiration there! I love all of her ink blending techniques and was drawn to this gorgeous card since it reminded me of a sunset. My mom is retiring and I thought that a sunset paradise would be just right. We have worked together for 26-1/2 years and I will sure will miss seeing her every day! (Pass the tissues!) For her card, I stamped the silhouette and sentiment from the 'Bon Voyage' set with Stazon Jet Black; the sun was sponged using a cut-out from a circle die, then the sun was masked before sponging the background. Since Mom loves Hawaii, I added a tropical flower cut with the ODBD Custom Frangipani Dies set. The frames were cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. I will also be squeezing this in at the last minute to the Sunrise/Sunset Fan Club challenge.
Thanks for visiting today!
