After the storm - a bare tree

Here is a card which I have made for the Crafters Companion one day special which begins today at 6pm on Hochanda. The fabulous inspirational sentiment stamps gave me the idea to make a scenic view for this card. I notice that Fiona Clayton (the presenter of the shows) has chosen to feature this card on her FB page so I guess its got her seal of approval.

what you will need:

Crafters Companion, Inspirational sayings stamp
Crafters Companion, Sheena, silhouette country lane stamp
Crafters Companion, Sheena stamping card
black card
black VersaFine ink pad
round circle punch/die
small heart punch
copy paper
pastel chalks

This is such a rewarding and easy card to make.

Firstly tear two strips of copy paper and using semi permanent tape secure them to a piece of Sheena stamping card. Punch out a circle which is going to be the sun in your picture and using the tape stick this onto the work area within the torn copy paper.

Begin to colour the area within the copy paper with the pastel chalks going from greens to oranges.
Remove the copy paper circle and shade the edges of the work by lightly applying black pastel chalk.

Stamp the image onto the work area using the black VersaFine ink (I have recently started using a stamp platform and I find it particularly useful for stamping silhouette stamps as you can re ink and re stamp the image over and over and never have faded or missed patches on your stamp).
Remove the copy paper (BIG REVEAL) and then stamp the sentiment.

Cut the card to the required size and mat and layer onto the base card.

I punched out some hearts from the left over pieces of pastel chalked card and stuck them around the sentiment but I only did this because I had acquired a few dark smudges and needed to cover them up.
