Pressed Flowers in Silhouette for the Sketch Challenge

Here is the latest sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers. Click on the link to see more great inspiration for this challenge.

This is the sketch.

… and here is my card


  • Did you know that you can create your own masks using dies and Window Sheet? For this card I have used a mask I made with one of the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and some White Embossing Paste. It adds just the right amount of texture to the background.
  • To create the silhouette layer:
    • Stamp images from Pressed Flowers using Stazon Jet Black ink and allow to dry.
    • Saturate an area with water and then sprinkle some Brusho crystals. Move around with an Aqua Painter to get desired effect. Allow to dry either naturally or with a heat tool before adding the other layers.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamp Sets: Pressed Flowers, Eastern Beauty
    • Cardstock: Thick Very Vanilla, Watercolor Paper, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight
    • Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody
    • Accessories: White Embossing Paste, Eclectic Layers Thinlits (for mask), Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, Brusho Crystal Colour: Red, Gamboge, Yellow
