Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouettes &
It's time for the Pals Paper Arts challenge. This week it's a color challenge using Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso. This was a particularly difficult challenge for me as I always think of flowers when I hear Daffodil Delight, but without a green, it's kind of, welL...a CHALLENGE! As you all know I believe inspiration is everywhere, even on your computer desktop! So as I was logging in this morning a looked at the wallpaper on my computer and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I took this pic a few weeks back when I was in Joshua Tree National Park at sunset. I have always loved silhouette shots and then I thought of Serene Silhouettes and I had my card! Tasteful Trim was added as an afterthought and my partner said it reminded him of his time in Africa! All of a sudden I thought “Lion King!”

Putting It Together Tips:
- I started this card by brayering Cherry Cobbler to the top portion of a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock. You have to brayer the color gradually by loading the brayer and starting to roll the color off the card stock. This eliminates the harsh line on the project.
- I “juiced up” my Early Espresso stamp pad with my reinker and imprinted the first image on the brayered card stock and then imprinted the image again in the same spot on a scrap of paper. I tore the scrap of paper to create the earth silhouette making sure the “earth” rose to meet the mound that the tree was on. Then I placed the scrap over the brayered card stock as a mask and loaded the exposed card stock with Early Espresso using the brayer.
- The sentiment component created with a Labels Framelit and the Tasteful Trim zig zag accents were edged with Early Espresso to make them pop. Load up the Sponge Dauber and lightly tap the edge of the cut out. It's better to tap lightly and add until you like the results. Once the ink is on the paper - it ain't comin' off!!!
