be an ADVENTURER - GDT Post by Chrissy Colon

We welcome back Chrissy Colon as our September Guest Designer! Check out her 1st post here. She's brought us a beautiful striking card today.
 
Chrissy says: I wanted to play around with my alcohol inks and this wonderful tree stamps.  I figured a sunset would provide a perfect backdrop for a stamping "adventure".

I simply applied my inks in an ombre fashion starting with the red then working toward the yellow.  They are super easy to blend.
I added some fabulous UmWowStudio chipboard chevrons for my finishing touch.
Stamps Used:

Love the card, My mom looked at it and said "They must be Starlings!" She doesn't like them birds. LOL They fight her for all the fruit on the place. But it truly is a great card.

This is so beautiful. The fire of the color is such a wonderful contrast with the shadowy tree/birds. :)
