Inspired By Nature

Yesterday I sat down with my new stamp sets and started playing. I grab the "Inspired by Nature" set that I received a convention and decided to create a sunset.
Using several inks I layered colors on top of each other.
I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and then using the brayer, ink More Mustard over the entire card. Using a 1 1/4" circle punch, I punched out a circle from photo copy paper and stuck it to the center of the card using Dotto. I then inked up the brayer again with Pumpkin Pie and lightly brayered the whole piece of card stock.
Using a sponge I inked up with Really Rust and lightly sponged the top and bottom portions of the card stock. I then used Bravo Burgundy and sponged the upper and lower corners and the edges of my card stock.
I then removed the circle to reveal the sun and using Chocolate chip I inked up the grass blades from "Inspired by Nature" and stamped the bottom portion of the card stock, ensuring that I got some of the blades on the sun. Voila!
Tell me what you think!
