 Well I have to admit that this weekend I am Wyoming sick (home sick). I so wish I would a plan better and be there this week but I been there 2 weeks ago and last week in Canada been traveling LOTS in July and August and sometime I have to stay in and get my work done :)
So I can't be in Wyoming to watch the Eclipse (Casper Wyoming is one of the spot for a great view of the Eclipse only a few hours from Cheyenne) so I decided that I will have my own view of the Solar Eclipse in my craft room and why not sharing with you all that are not in the path, or working, or cloudy day and so on.... Here the best view of the Eclipse and you can make your own for tomorrow.

I use the 1¾ circle punch and punch on copy paper for a template to sponge my sun Daffodil Delight then I sponge some soft sky and Island Indigo. Bottom part is sponge in Pear Pizzazz and little of Old Olive. I punch out a 1¾ black circle apply a light layer of Wink of Stella then adhere on top of the Daffodil Delight but off to the left a little to get a little of the sunlight shining.   Stamp the Lovely as a Tree using Soft Suede ink. VOILA we have our own Solar Eclipse. 
-Island Indigo 8½ x 5½ fold in half card base
-Whisper White 5¼ x 4 *this is the piece that I sponge and stamps.

 This was the first attempt and I was not to satisfied so did the other one. This one is using the Sheltering tree instead of the Lovely as a Tree and the blue was night of navy.
