It is time to show some sneak peeks for the next Paper Makeup Stamps release on May 7th! {grin}

Today we are featuring the Build a Sentiment set.  I'm getting a package ready to send to my brother who is deployed again in the Middle East, so I decided to make today's card for him.  I used the Willow Tree for my image because when we were children, we used to play at a park that had a little island and several willow trees growing on it.  One of our favorite things to do was hang on those willow tree vines and swing and swing.  Good memories.  {smile}

For the colored area, I masked off the tree section and sponged ink across it.  I just did some fun sponging cards like this at a stamp camp and couldn't wait to make some more!  I love the pop of color it gives a silhouette image.  {wink}
