Orange and Brown

Good Morning to all my crafting friends on this lovely sunny day.  I hope that the sun is shining wherever you are.
I'm here today with a card that I've made for the 'Cardz 4 Guyz' challenge and their theme this week is 'Orange and Brown.'

I started by taking some peach card and masking off the water which I then coloured with Adirondack Lake Mist. I then masked off the sun and sponged round it with Impress Tangerine ink. Once the background was finished, I then stamped the boat, grasses and birds with Memento Rich Cocoa. I used Ink Duster to add orange around the edge of the card to frame the card.  All the stamps that I've used today are by Inkylicious.  The card was mounted on orange card and then on brown.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:


  1. What a wonderfully tranquil scene you created with your inked background and lovely stampings! Thanks for joining us in the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge! Julia xx

  11. Wow, Sandma! What a gorgeous colour scheme and a beautiful serene card! I wonder if you could recreate the sunset on my blog post in ink?

    1. Hi Sally, thank you so much for your kind comment. I would be happy to try to recreate the sunset but I'm not sure how I could do it on your blog post. When you say 'In ink' do you mean to colour the sunset completely with inks, rather than using coloured card to start with as I did on this card? Let me know x

  12. Well you definitely cracked THAT challenge. Lovely masculine card.

    Thanks for popping over and leaving me a comment.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  13. A stunning scene Sandma - your colouring is amazing.
    Thank you for your comment - sorry about the missing pic.(no idea what happened there)!
    Hugs, Sylvia xxx

  14. Again a beautiful scene with a delicat and stunning background; looks great! Hugs, Gerrina

  15. love this card and the colour scheme

  16. Beautiful card.....but think it needs a frame rather than an envelope and hung on a wall. Perhaps the recipient will frame it.
