Evening Silhouette

Hi everyone!  Well, Spring has officially arrived.  Maybe someone ought to tell that to the weather here in Buffalo lol.  I long for the nights I can sit outside and have a cold drink and just relax... So, I have a CAS card to share with you that reminds me of the time soon to come.

This card uses the newly released Nature Silhouettes 2 set from Sweet N Sassy stamps. It is very simple to create. I first punched out a small circle from a post it note to create a mask for the moon. I sponged 3 different shades of blue (baja breeze, marina mist, not quite navy all from SU) going from the lightest first to the darkest at the top. The image was stamped 4 different times with versafine black to create some depth and then black ink was sponged on the bottom edge. I added a couple birds from the Serene Silhouettes set which is now back in stock. I triple matted the focal panel to brighten it up a bit and because I was not using any embellishments. Finally, I sprayed some glimmer mist on it for a bit of shimmer.

I just love creating sunsets, sunrises, and evening scenes with silhouette sets, they are fun to create...and easy too. I hope that you will give it a try and let me know if you do because I would love to check them out!

Have a blessed day!
