I made this card with a set released today by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called The Sea...as soon as I laid eyes on this beautiful silhouette, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and start sponging, and I'm practicing my brayering! I masked the sun to make a sunset similar to ones I sometimes see on the North coast of Northern Ireland up by Portrush or Portstewart where the sky is a bright golden yellow and brilliant pink.
I also use a fantastic new set called Decorative Frame toppers at the top and bottom of the middle panel - it has all kinds of different accents to add to sentiments and images.
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is having a fun Virtual Stamp Day of challenges in the SNSS members forum and my card is a sample for one of the challenges which will be live at 6:00 pm EST. If you'd like to blog hop with us, join us on my blog.
