Sun Arise, She Bring In The Morning

Hello.  Welcome.  Over at FSC they want to see sunrise or sunset.  Now I'm not much of an artist so my first take, involving a rhino, left him unsure whether he was standing under a sunrise, a sunset or a bush fire.  It's in the 'pending' basket.  Here's take two. 

I'm calling this Chameleon at Sunset.  I've used a stamp from Flonzcraft's Animal Landscape Borders #2, stamped and embossed with black powder.  The background was made using brusho's.  I sprinkled yellow brusho and rubbed it into a circle using my finger.  The I sprinkled alternating red and scarlet and rubbed them out in horizontal lines, again using my finger.  Then I spritzed with water.  This technique gives more control over the way the colours behave.  Then I went round the edge of my ATC with versamark and embossed the rough border with black powder.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. That's gorgeous - I've never seen brushos used in a "controlled" way before but it's made a wonderful sunset, perfect for the stamp. Thanks for sharing with us at Twofers

  2. The yellow brusho and your finger created a perfect setting sun! A great scene, Gail, with an artsy embossed border. Bravo!

  3. Wow, the ATC ist beautiful. Great background and scene.
    Thanks for sharing at FSC.

  4. Stunning result here Bunny. I've not tried brusho's, the result you are showing us here is brilliant. I love the black ep edges as well, makes a great ATG entry for us at Twofers. XOXO

  5. I love this Gail! I've never managed any control at all with Brusho's, and I can guess at the state of your finger lol. I also like to see your pending hippo :-D Thank you for joining in with our challenge at Country View Crafs, and have a fab week. Sue xx
