Silhouette Trees

The image for this card was created by stamping with Versamark, then using white embossing powder as a resist before sponging the card with shades of blue ink (Pool Party, Tumbled Glass and Broken China).  Pieces of matching card were embossed to make two panels behind the image and some tiny flowers and butterfly added.  Background paper was a scrap from my dwindling stock of Tim Holtz Vintage shabby collection.  The actual colours tone together much better than they appear as picked up by the scanner - odd how that happens sometimes although no doubt there is a technical explanation!!

Background - Vintage shabby collection paper from Tim Holtz
Image - from Serene Silhouette stamp set, Stampin' Up
Panels - Pool Party card embossed using Sheena floral folder
Sentiment - computer generated, SU punches
Butterfly and Flowers - SU punches (and stamp)
