Sorry Silhouette

This is for Julie's Mojo Madness Contest. I needed a sympathy card and the first set I reached for was Garden Silhouettes. I can't believe I've never inked these stamps up before. That's gonna change because I LOVE this image! I inked up my stamp with Mellow Moss, then dotted the blooms with a Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant Marker. Did a little huffing and stamped down on Kraft paper..another first time use, GASP..love that too! I went over the stems with an Old Olive marker and then added some dots with my white gel pen. For the little triangle pieces, I just used the photo corner punch. They are topped with a Hydrangea Dew Drop. I also outlined all the Kraft paper and the sentiment (which is raised with a dimensional) with the white gel pen. It just made the Kraft paper stand out more without having to use additional cardstock. Julie thanks so much for the wonderful layout! Happy Stamping.

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes, So Many Sayings
Paper: Perfect Plum, white, Old Olive designer paper, Kraft, Old Olive
Ink: Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Palette Noir (TAC)

This is just fabulously gorgeous. I actually designed this sketch to use with this set and then couldn't find the set when I went to make my sample. LOL! Love the stamping on Kraft - I think I'm totally going to have to order some now. Thanks for playing!
