FDBP Guest Designer Card Day 4

Thankfully Rich made it through his surgery okay yesterday and is doing well. I just hope that the procedure solved the problem and he will not be in anymore pain.
I ending up seeing that Deanna said goodbye to Jeremy on the Bachlorette last night. I have not had a chance to watch the show yet though. I have a feeling she picks Jesse now but I will have to watch last nights show first to stick with that pick so I will let you know what I think after I watch it.
Now on to the card. This is the 4th sample I made for Pam.
Once again I got the inspiration for this one from Michelle Zindorf. I did not have any luck with her brayering technique to blend the colors, it is a lot harder than it looks but I did have much better luck doing it with sponges though. I started by stamping the images from the Create a Scene Set and the Solid set. Then I colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils and blended them with gamsol. After that I colored over the images with a Versamark pen and embossed them with clear embossing powder. When I was done with that I sponged the sunset in the background using SU Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust classic inksI finished it off with a simple black mat that I pierced holes in using my SU mat pack. That's it hope you like it. Tomorrow I will be back with my final sample so check back then.

That card could possibly look like Deanna and her near future hubby.
You did a fabulous job on the card. I hope to try Michelle's technique one day also.
