Silhouette Burst

Happy Saturday!

I had an idea Friday that I wanted to try with masking the circle and stamping the silhouette burst in the masked circle. I was planning on having the flowers stamp outside of the mask partially.

I actually ended up with two different cards. I created this one first.



I used the same mask and reverse masked to get the sponged circles. I added a touch of brown flowersoft to the edges. This didn't end up reflecting what I had first envisioned so I created a second card which was closer to what I was thinking of. I also switched the colors to make it more spring like.


The dark color is actually purple but it shows up black.

I hope your weekend is going to be very inky. :)
