Less is More #348 - Happy Birthday

I love watercolouring.  When I saw that the theme for the Less is More challenge is "Watercoloring", I was excited and got to work.  Of course it didn't help that I saw the challenge only two hours before it closed.  But I seem to do well under stress.  My adrenaline kicked in.  My imagination went into overdrive.  And I created a card with minutes to spare.

I love sunsets.  The other day we were driving along and I fell in love with the wonderful muted tones that painted the sky.  All sunsets don't have to be vivid and overwhelming, after all.  I decided to try to capture the tones in my creation.

On a piece of Mixed Media paper I worked with Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry and Marina Mist inks to make an ovalish sunset.  In the right bottom corner I stamped three of the trees from Lovely as a Tree and below that stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I cut a silhouette of birds on a branch with a die and attached that partway up and towards the left.

I love the result!

I hope you'll check out the other creations at Less is More.
