I love the mornings I see the sunrise, they make me happy and some of them I look at and try to figure out what Copic colours I would use to colour them ...would that be considered distracted driving? <smile>
I live in a small rural town so my drive to work every day is on country roads. I am also up very early and in the spring primarily, I am blessed to catch the sunrise. They just seem more stunning in the spring .... maybe that is because the winter is always long, dreary and dark where I live.
It is catching the sunrise on my drive and seeing the sun come up behind the barns I pass that inspired my card using "Barn" and "Hello Sunshine" sentiment from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. Good Morning Sunshine
After stamping on Copic marker friendly paper, I hand fussy cut the barn leaving a thin white edge. I set it aside and created my sun ray background using a stencil and some ink on watercolor paper. I find inks blend better and I can add more layers of ink on watercolor paper then card stock so that is what I use for ink and ink blending. After inking the background I cut it to fit my 5.5" x 5.5" card base.
