Soothing Sunset

My card today is for Sketch No.90 over at Friday Sketchers. The image is from Elusive Images unmounted plate Eastern Grasses. I have stamped and embossed the image onto a piece of glossy card which I have brayered with Soothing Sunset Big and Juicy inkpad. The colours are much more subtle in real life and I was quite surprised to find the orange part of the image so bright in the pic. The papers are from Cuddly Buddly, I do love these downloaded papers. All the elements of the sketch are mounted onto purple Silk Mirri card. The flowers are from my stash, I used a Brilliance inkpad to add some colour to the larger flower and the pearl brad is from a set of gorgeous brads from Papermania.

  8. I love it Beryl. Your brayered background is so subtle. What a coincidence that we both opted for the same themeplate today and yet the outcomes are totally different.
