Into the Sunset

For my husband for our anniversary - 36 years next week.  We are off from work next week -- he's pulling out and swapping an engine on his car, and I'm crafting in my room.  We'll both be happy doing our hobbies -- but we will certainly take some time for a nice ride (not with the top down yet . . . too cold) and go out for dinner.  And of course see our kids too.

Virginia's View - Layers and Dimensions - I colored the image (from Deep Red) with watercolors, and then partially die cut it.  Then cut the scalloped oval from pattern paper (DCWV) and sponged it with some more orangey colors.  These are layered and popped.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - I flipped this upside down -- I'm not sure if this still qualifies  . . .

Always Playing with Paper - it's their Anniversary too -- Anything Goes

And  for Cardz 4 Guyz  - Something Beginning with S -- Sunset and Steve (that's my husband)

I created the rest of the Sunset with 2 stencils.  I sponged the rays with a Tim Holtz stencil, then shifted it a bit.  Then put a Simon Says Stamp falling hearts over the white space and sponged in the blue hearts.  They look more like flying birds  . . . oh well - up close they are hearts.  

Thanks for looking and commenting.  For those of you celebrating Easter or Passover, I hope you are having a good holiday.
