Twilight Barn

 Hello! I made a card with the barn from Farm Life today. I colored in greys to make it look completely shadowed, but the sky is looking a bit lighter in the photo, so it looks a little odd to me now. Here is the photo I was looking at for inspiration. I wanted my barn to be lighter than in the photo, but maybe not this light.

 I stamped the barn on a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock, cut to 3 1/4 inches by 5 1/4 inches and used Copics to color, starting with N7.
 Added N5.

 Added N3.

Filled in with N1. 

 I used the previous markers to deepen the shadows, then added a touch of BV11.

 I colored over the entire image with a Versa Marker so my embossing powder would have something to stick to, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

 I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink in a horizontal band across the background. The embossing resists the sponging, so my image remains unchanged.

Sponged a narrow band of Rose Bud under the yellow. I used smaller sponge daubers to keep the band narrower. 

Sponged a narrow band of Memento Tangelo below the pink. 

Sponged the top area with Memento Summer Sky. 

Then sponged Memento Danube Blue. 

 Then I sponged Memento Paris Dusk from the sides, trying to make it look like clouds.

 I used sticky notes to mask the sky and sponged Memento Tuxedo Black ink along the bottom.

 I used N7 to add some shadows on the ground in front of the barn. Used BV00 and BV11 to add a little lavender color just along the horizon line.

I layered with a piece of Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used Little Boy Blue for my 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inch card base. The sentiment is from the new free with three set, Various Verses.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
