Serene Sunset

Have I told you yet how much I love the stamp set Serene Silhouettes? It has some gorgeous images in it! They work great as silhouettes, or you can break out the markers and color them in. Two looks for the price of one- WooHoo!

So, of course, today's card features this amazing stamp set. This was one of my mom's designs I copied awhile back. Didn't it turn out nicely?? In order to get the black "ground" look we stamped the tree-tops down next to the ground level and then filled in the rest of the area using black ink and a sponge dauber. Neat trick!

To get the look of the sun in the background we used a technique called Reverse Masking. In this case, we punched a circle out of a post-it note (discarding the circle) and then stuck the post-it to the card and sponged orange ink inside the circle window. Another neat trick!!

Hope you enjoyed the card and tricks today. Flutterby again soon!
