Summer Silhouettes


Splitcoaststampers - CAS68 Think Summer
Flutterby Wednesday - FBW #110 Use Flowers

When I think of summer, I think of sunshine, warm colors, flowers, butterflies, etc. I {heart} this new stamp set by Paper Makeup Stamps called Faith Hope Love. It has these amazing flower silhouettes and the word art on this card is one of the three sayings that comes with it. Such an inspiring set!

To create this simple scene, I used a circle as a mask to leave a white sun image and sponged the background with Apricot Appeal, Only Orange and Pumpkin Pie inks. Then I stamped the grass and flowers with stazon black. The butterflies are ones that flutter around Paper Makeup's Danni Fairy. I just colored them in separately, cut them out and taped them on to finish the scene.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
