FYI – Brighten My World

It is time for another For Your Inspiration challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> FYI44.


I love the striking contrast of the sunset colors sandwiched between the silhouetted land and grey clouds. And here is how I used that:

The yellow panel is sponge-brayered with yellow and orange. I tried to brayer black triangles onto the panel, but it just didn’t look right and seemed too flat. To add depth, I made the triangles with paper and overlapped them – sorta like a curtain.

The lamp is heat embossed with silver and fussy-cut. I attached it with dimensionals – one under the bulb (tucked into the corner where the black triangles meet) and one at the tippy top attaching it to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by!
