Indian Sunset

Good morning darlings, I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front this week as work has been even more hectic than usual so I've been counting down to the weekend for an inky fix. This morning my card features one of the gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this fab silhouette is from Indian Textiles

Memento inks are perfect for brayering and the colours are beautiful and clear, they blend beautifully too. For this project I used Dandelion, Canteloupe, Tangelo  and Ladybug for the sky. I tore some copy paper to create a mask for the hills and used Lilac Posies, Sweet Plum and Paris Dusk. I then brayered a little Paris Dusk all around the edges. I stamped the large Taj Mahal Silhouette with Memento Tuxedo Black and added some white highlights with an inksentials pen. The little trees on top of the hill are from the clear stamp set, Terrific Treescapes.

I've used a backing paper from the Leafy Brocade downloads and added some black organza ribbon and a little paper flower.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
A little bit crafty: anything goes
Crafty Bloggers Network: anything goes
Crafty Ribbons: Anything goes with ribbon
Papertake Weekly: anything goes
Vickie's Challenges: anything goes

Well I'm heading off to my craft room for a few hours now
Have a happy Saturday

  4. I love the way your orange flower embellishment really brings out the sense of sunset & the use of the mauves really makes the whole 'pop' when combined with the black. Delightfully eye-catching.
