Nature Notes Sunset

I love to watch the sunset! I know that sounds cliche but it's true. And I'm amazed at the many different shades it comes in. There's the blues that fade to oranges, the purples that fade to reds...etc. 
So I took inspiration from the Tree scene in Nature Notes.

Rogue Redhead Designs: Nature Notes stamp plate
Copic markers: R24, R22, R20
Stampin' Up Basic Black, Calypso Coral and Blush Blossom ink pads
Stampin' Up Whisper White cardstock, brad and punch
Flower, little pink flower brads, adhesive and pop dots

I love how this stamp lends it's self to so many possibilities.

I used Copic markers to color the trees, background, the lines going around the edge and the coloring on the flower. The tree scene, sentiment and flourish are stamped using Stampin Up ink pads.  The brad and punch are from Stampin up also.  The flower is from a fake plant my Sister gave me. And finally I placed 3 pink flowers brads in each corner.
