Sunset colors

If you're here for the Hero Arts Hostess Summer Picnic Blog Hop, please click HERE.  Thank you!


Isn't this a gorgeous image?  I skidded to a stop when I saw it at Sue's blog, and then headed over to the Papercraft Star Challenge to check it out some more.  The colors here are magical!  I just bought some new paper pads, and sure enough, I think these papers match the colors pretty well - what do you think?


supplies: Hero Arts pool layering paper as card base, design papers from MME's Sky's the Limit pad, paper doily, my own hand-dyed seam binding (worn lipstick, I think?), old music paper and PPI flower dies, Hero Arts My Happy stamp set, Tide Pool mid-tone ink, aqua pearls, coral button

I loved working on this - hope you like it too!
