Summer Sunrise

Hello! I've got another Farm Life card to share today. It was originally going to be a larger, square card, but the first time I stamped the sentiment, it came out crooked. So this is the slightly modified version. 

I started by sponging some Memento Desert Sand ink on my cardstock. 

Added Memento Summer Sky, sponging from the top until I reached the Desert Sand. 

Sponged Paris Dusk at the top. 

Sponged Memento Potter's Clay at the bottom. 

Then I sponged Memento Rich Cocoa along the bottom. 

I stamped the wheat silhouette with Memento Rich Cocoa. After that is when I stamped a crooked sentiment and decided to crop it away.

For the watering card, I colored with Copics, starting with N5. 

Added N3. 

Filled in with N1. 

Added a little E37 and then used my blender pen to push in some highlights. 

YG95 on the foliage. After coloring, I cut out the image. 

I layered the background with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used a Pumpkin Spice card base. I used Pop Dots to adhere the watering can.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great day!

Theresa, this is lovely, the colors are so soft and the wheat looks like it is moving in the background.
