For about a year now these hand painted cookies that resemble the breathtaking Colorado Autumn sunset,have been an idea wondering around in my mind. I was a tad hesitant to create them, because I felt it was imperative to show the awe-inspiring emotion one feels as they watch sun gently disappear behind the trees. I found a boost of inspiration on Yoko’s nail art Pinterest page and ViraNova! Now all I needed to do was grab four petal dust colours and started painting. I am happy to say I am pleasantly pleased with the outcome!
