sometimes it just works #690 & 691

This came together as the result of another failed attempt at watercoloring an ombre background.  This time all the colors were beautiful however i had some definite demarcation lines.  I made this yesterday and thought all day of what to make with this piece.  Since it was a full 5x4.5 piece cutting it down after adding distress inks around the edges with a mask for the sun seemed the right thing to do.  It’s been a long time since i made a card similar to this and it used to be my go to sympathy design.  For this one I used a Hero Arts stamp and an old SU stamp both of which I obtained at a rummage.  So peaceful, don’t you think? Stamped with Chocolate Chip SU ink so it’s not as stark as black silhouettes.   Entering into Simon’s Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.
