Silhouette Scene Card

First, I must apologize for the terrible quality of this photo. With the black card base, I don't know what I was thinking trying to photograph it on a black background! Ahh well.

I am entering this card into the challenge at the Craft A Scene Blog, which is to create a scene with a silhouette. I used a matte coated card stock, and a torn paper mask to sponge the hills. The trees and birds are by Stampscapes, and I'm not sure who makes the word stamp. Spellbinders makes the border die cut, which is cut form a pretty pearlized purple paper.  Oh, before I did the stamping I brayered the background with several purple die based inks.

I also thought this would be a good time to repost a photo I took in October 2011, of my hubby and BIL kayaking on the Lake Of Bays in Miskoka Ontario at sunset.

Thanks for stopping by today!
