Serene Sunset

What an amazing weekend. It's been lovely to have so much sunshine.
I'm here with a card that I've made for this week's Less is More challenge and their theme this week is 'Sunset.'

I started by gently brushing over the left hand corner with Adirondack Lemonade ink. I then used a cut out circle to mask off and create the sun.  To do this, I brushed around the circle using the same ink to start with and then I gradually built up the colours of the sunset with Adirondack Peach Bellini and then Mountain Rose. I used a very light dusting of Paris Dusk to finish the sunset.  I stamped the silhouette image of the Daydreamer by Inkylicious with Versafine Onyx Black over the sunset. As always with LIM, I've left lots of white space on the card to keep it clean and simple. I hope you like it :)
