AO Release day 2

I am back with another sample using a new plate from Artistic Outpost.
This card uses a stamp from The Outpost plate. I absolutely LOVE this plate. This image is a large version of an image on the Serenity plate and I am so happy to see it in a larger scale.
I love this sentiment from the plate and just had to create a home that was nestled right in the center of the sunshine. I used my Prismacolor pencils to create the sunset. I just colored yellow right around the house and then colored outward from that with the various oranges, finally blending it all with Gamsol. I thought it worked out pretty well. I also brushed yellow Stickles in an outward motion around the house to add some sparkle. I stamped the house again and aged it a little with Distress inks and added it with foam tape for dimension. The frame was cut with a Nestabilities and is mounted on foam tape also. Finally, I added the sentiment in a wavy banner across the top.
Thanks for stopping by!! Check back tomorrow for an Artistic Outpost blog hop!!
