Less is More 260

I wasn't going to play challenges this week - too many things to do before school goes back next week - but, what can I say, I love to make cards and the challenge at Less is More was just too wonderful to keep ignoring! I think I will sneak in before the deadline.

The challenge this week is to make a card that includes a silhouette.

First I masked off a column and sponged in Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum to create a twilight sky. I used Blackberry Bliss to stamp the leaves, flowers and dragonfly. As I wanted to add in some gold, I stamped off the versamark before adding in the leaves as I wanted a light coverage of gold. I highlighted the flowers with a gold gel pen.

Card: Whisper White
Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Awesomely Artistic, Wetlands (sentiment)
Inks: Blackberry Bliss, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Other: Gold embossing powder, gold gel pen.
All products Stampin' Up.
