Sunrise, Sunset - card #1

Welcome to the weekend.  So happy I am able to get a chance to stamp.  
I decided to challenge myself to use this thistle image stamp on three different cards in different ways.  So, over the next couple of days, I will post the other cards that I create using it, so hope you can stay tuned and check in.  
To start this challenge to myself, I checked out the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast and found the Pinterest image (below).  Loved the colours and the warmth it shed.  
I started by inking up the stamp with Distress inks in orange and yellow, sprayed with water then stamped onto my card front.  I inked the stamp again with Memento grey and then repeated the image on my card front.  
I am also adding this one to the Seize the Birthday; Anything Goes.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look...very appreciated!

Supplies:  stamps; Avery Elle, Fred Mullett/ Memento bl and grey/ Distress inks/ twine
