Serene Sunset

I love the Serene Silhouette stamp set.  Especially when it is stamped in black.  Not sure why it took me so long to buy the stamp set for myself???   When I first saw it I knew I want to sponge a sunset background and have the image be black.  Here is what I came up with.

I paired it with the Wonderful Mother stamp sets.  It's a sweet stamp set that can be used year round to let any mom know how truly wonderful she is.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I stamped the image first in Pink Pirouette ink and then stamped it a little higher in Black Staz-On ink.  This gives the sentiment a slight shadow effect.  I did the same thing for inside sentiment.

When I peeled off the post it note I was using to mask my first card it ripped the white paper.  Soooooo, I took that piece and cut it down to decorate the inside.   Love those happy accidents, don't you? 

This design would make a lovely one layer card, but I wanted to add a ribbon, then I decided to add a vintage brad.  I was going to add a black mat, but forgot.  It is still pretty.

You are so right - it is a gorgeous set. The card you made with is is SO pretty - still another technique to try - I have sponged a bg with nesties (ovals, etc.) but not a full length strip - what a great effect.
