Sunset or Moonrise?

I can't quite decide whether I've made a sunset or a moonrise here!


I've used the covermount stamps from the latest issue of Creative Stamping.  I punched a circle to use as a mask and also masked the area of the card below it, then sponged several shades of progressively darker pink ink to create a sunset (or moonrise - or possibly dawn) sky. Then I removed the masking and masked the upper part of the card and sponged a tiny amount of very light blue along the edge.

I used Versafine ink to stamp all the silhouettes and the sentiment -  it's my favourite ink for silhouettes as it gives good dark images. I added a tiny amount of grey pencil shading along the skyline and to give the deer and trees shadows, then  added a few highlights using Stickles.

I am sharing this with
