SU's Nature Silhouettes
A friend of ours turned 30 last month. He is an avid hunter who has gotten Matt involved. When I saw Stampin Up's Nature Silhouettes I new I needed to buy it. I put together this card which reminded me of the morning when we went out hunting together (I just went for the walk).
If only I could figure out how to take pictures. they always seem to come out fuzzy no matter what I do. Bla!!
The tree and deer were versamarked, stamped in black ink, and then embossed with clear embossing powder. This was so I could sponge the background on and wipe off any extra. After sponging on Barely Banana ink I punched out a circle from a post it note (sticky side) and then sponged over it with Summer Sun ink. When you remove the mask you end up with a moon.
