Serene Silhouette

One of the stamp sets I just HAD to own when I first laid eyes on the new catalogue is Serene Silhouettes.  I just love the images in that set and saw so many possibilities for it.  Today I have a card I designed using this set for my team meeting this month...

Simple any-occasion card featuring the Serene Silhouettes stamp set
Isn't that cool?  What's even better is that the focal image is inked right on the Whisper White layer, thanks to some masking and sponging.  The result is the look of torn paper.  I had originally planned to do a single layer card, but decided that matting it with black just made the whole thing pop.  I omitted a sentiment on the front...didn't want to take away from the peacefulness of the image...but this could easily work for just about any occasion.  I like this card so much I've decided to use it for a class I have tonight.  They want a generic thank you card...by adding a "thank you" on the inside I think this one fits the bill quite nicely, no??  I hope my class participants think so!

  5. I followed a link from Steph at Hotkissed to see this sensational card. So dramatic yet peaceful. It almost looks like a frame picture. So pretty
    I pinned it to one of my boards - Cards I want to recreate.
