Close to Nature @ Penny Black & More challenge

A little late with my DT card for Penny Black & More - not sure where the month went but I obviously didn't realise I hadn't got my card scheduled!

Our challenge this month is Close to Nature. I've used Penny Black 30-300 Happy Notes for my card. I began with a piece of card which I used a post it circle for the sun and then dragged colour across the card. Then I stamped over with the image removing the post it and dragged a little of the colour over the white area that was left from the circle.

On my base card I used the other stamps in the set. Then I edged just the top and bottom of my card with a black sharpie before mounting onto the base card.

Our sponsors this month are Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons and Sizzix, so as usual lots of fab prizes to be won.

This is incredible. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you for your ideas.
You said you dragged color across, but this looks like watercoloring.
So, you are saying you just dragged the watercolor across?
Are these dye inks?
Thanks for info.

A lovely creation, this could be a late evening sunset or an early morning sun rise - very dramatic with the silhouetted birds and trees. xxx
