PP52


I have been looking at Nature Silhouettes for some time. I finally broke down and bought this set. I decided it would make a good father's day card for my husband.  I used the CAS sketch from Paper Players.

I tried my hand at brayering for the first time and I would say I need a lot of practice! LOL  I tried using my basic black classic ink for the images but could not get a good stamped image.  I used the trusty old Stazon to get a good stamp.  I matted the image panel with old olive and attached that to bashful blue that had been embossed with the square lattice embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the word window punch and attached it to a piece of old olive that was punched with the modern label punch.  I attached this with dimensionals, then attached it all to a basic black card base.

Thanks for looking!
Carol
