Sunset frame

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: all things bright and beautiful, showcasing Paper Artsy. I don't have any Paper Artsy products, although I love their whimsical flower stamps.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday 3x4 set and stamped it with Versamark ink on black cardstock and then  heat embossed it with Paper Mania ultra fine silver embossing powder

I then diecut the circle frame, I think it's Memory Box but I got it second hand, so not 100% sure.

I traced the opening onto the cardbase and inkblended Versamagic inks: Pink Grapefruit, Red Brick and Perfect Plumeria
as if a sunset. I thought the black card would make the colors pop more and make them look brighter. Also it feels more masculine to me with the chalky finish, but other inks would be even brighter.

Mounted the black panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.
