Sunrise, Sunset

I belong to the AZ Stampers group and each month we do an Above/Below swap.  This means that you send a card within the chosen theme to the gal signed up below you and to the gal signed up above you. This month's theme is Sunset.

I brayered my Country K-Pad ink on a small piece of glossy white cardstock.  I tore a piece of paper to cover what I brayered then brayered Burnt Umber PH ink to represent the ground. I stamped the pine tree from the retired Good Timber set in Noir PH ink and then filled in the trunk with my black Copic marker.  The text is a stamp called His Glory.

I added 3 little "flowers" from the Black Gem collection.  I think they add just that final touch to the card. Unfortunately, the black Copic marker really stands out on the tree.  I was hoping it would have blended in better but then, maybe my ink pad needs re-inked....
