Colouring A Sunset Scene - Handmade Card Project

I've been watching some Instagram stories lately with nature and sunsets in them - two things I love to see, experience, and watch, and just on impulse the other night decided to get my colouring pencils out and try and create a sunset myself.

I count myself as a crafter much more than an artist, but have a collection of adult colouring books, and love playing around sometimes.

To help me with this doodle I looked up sunset images on Google, and chose a scene with the type of colours I was looking for, that I thought I could do a version of.


I coloured on to white card, and tried to blend in the shading as much as possible. When I was happy with the result I added in a little landscape of rocks, inspired by Roque Nublo in Gran Canaria, which I had just mentioned in an article on the island, and a touch of glitter, as white pencil does not show up enough and I needed to create some whiter cloud parts.

As a finishing touch I mounted the finished piece on card, then added a musical note stamp, inked in the same colour scheme, from Creative Stamping Magazine. The final touch was the quote, something that has always resonated with me, and seemed to fit really well with the drawing I created. After adding in a few touches of Nuvo Drops, it was a complete card.


It's not very often I do things like this, but I was pleased with the result, found it really relaxing, and would definitely try again. Would love to know what you think, and if you have any other ideas for nature scenes/landscapes, or settings I could add a sunset to. Let me know below, and thanks for reading.
