Penny Black - Floral Silhouettes

Hi everyone.  I have a super CAS card for you today using one of the beautiful images from the Floral Silhouette Stamp set (30-563).

I think this is a very peaceful and soothing monocromatic design.  It could be used for a lot of different occasions.

I stamped two of the flowers (off set from each other) in smoky slate ink (softer gray).  I stamped one more of the same image over top, in the center of the other two flowers, in granite gray ink (darker gray).  The sentiment is stamped using the lighter gray ink.

Close-up ...
Thanks for stopping by!

I adore the stamping in that soft grey and then the mossy green Loll, using that wonderful PB silhouette stamp, and I love the sentiment with the block letters and the swirly 'love' which goes excellently. A beautiful CAS card! x

I love the simplicity of this and the shadow effect, Lolly! I love it in the gray, but think it would look lovely in other colors too!

The floral silhouette in gray monochromatic colors is so elegant, soothing, and peaceful, Loll! The flowing font style of the sentiment is perfect for the image!

This is definitely a very peaceful and soothing monochromatic design Loll! The image is just stunning and I love it done in these soft grey colors. At first I thought they were a light green, but if memory serves me, they have a slight greenish hue to the gray. Love it! It sure can be used with so many sentiments! A stunning for sure. Hugs, Brenda

The lighter stamping behind gives an ethereal look to your lovely card, Loll. I can see this as a sympathy card.

I love the slightly hazy image on the card. Using two colors is really a very good solution for this effect. Beautiful card, Loll.
