Flowers at Sunset

One last scene card using Serene Silhouettes, brayer and some bleach!
I kinda messed this one up around the sun but saved it enough to use as a card I think! But we are always our own worst critics! I cut a long post-it to use as a mask for the hillls and sponged those adding Soft Suede just above them.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Made By You.
Paper: Midnight Muse CS, Old Olive CS, White Glossy CS, Copy Paper.
Ink: Stazon Black, Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie, Primrose Petals, Old Olive, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede.
Accessories: Brayer, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Sponge, Watercolor Brush, post-it notes.

Flowers in the Moonlight

For this card I sponged some Summer Starfruit ink through the middle of the panel first and then brayered Primrose ink on the bottom half. I then added Island Indigo ink around the edges toward the middle, applying very lightly through the middle and finished with Midnight Muse.
 Each time I use my brayer on Glossy CS, I'm amazed at the different outcome. Each color added with different amounts of pressure on the brayer offers a different look each time! For these cards I used very light pressure on the brayer but rolled over the portion of CS as many times as it took to get a smooth, no line application. As in the other two cards, bleach painted around the flowers to highlight and dotted around the moon with a toothpick for stars!
I also used the punched out reverse circle mask to sponge some yellow where the shadow of the full moon would be.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Made for You.
Paper: Midnight Muse CS, More Mustard CS, White Glossy CS, copy paper.
Ink: Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Stazon Black.
Accessories: 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Bleach, Watercolor Brush, Brayer, Sponge, post-it notes, toothpicks.

Birds at Night

Another card using Serene Silhouettes, my Brayer and some bleach. This started out being Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie and Primrose Petals with the circle mask over the Summer Starfruit at the top BUT I ended up going over it with Midnight Muse which gave it more of a glow and darker for night time. I like that you can still see some yellow and orange through the middle. I went back over the moon with some bleach then added a little Summer Starfruit. I also highlighted the birds and branches with bleach using a watercolor brush and again dotted some bleach around using a toothpick for stars.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Made for You.
Paper: Soft Suede CS, Old Olive CS, White Glossy CS, Copy paper.
Ink: Stazon Black, Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse.
Accessories: 1-1/4" Circle Punch, post-it notes, bleach, watercolor brush, Brayer, Sponge, toothpicks.

Trees in the Moonlight

Using Serene Silhouettes, my Brayer and some bleach I created a few scene cards...this is the first one. I used a toothpick to dot the bleach around the moon and used a watercolor brush to paint the tree branches with bleach as well.
A post-it was used to mask off the tree line and to create the moon mask.
The main image is framed with copy paper instead of CS to cut back on the weight with four layers! 

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes.
Paper: White Glossy CS, Old Olive CS, Midnight Muse CS, copy paper.
Ink: Old Olive, Summer Starfruit, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Stazon Black.
Accessories: 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Sponge, Brayer, Black Starpie Fine point marker, Watercolor Brush.

Sweet Silhouettes

Today's card uses Serene Silhouettes and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets!
The Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack makes it so easy to layer or create a mask for these Framelit shapes as I did here by piercing and then cutting out along the smaller pierced size in this shape. I used Vellum CS for this so I could line it up along the outer edge and sponge just the center part.
Again I mixed Very Vanilla and Whisper White CS for this look.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Itty Bitty Banners.
Paper: Whisper White CS, Very Vanilla CS, First Edition DSP, Vellum CS.
