Tropical Paradise

When it came time for my turn to post on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog there was really no question of which stamp set I'd highlight - it just HAD to be Landscape Silhouettes,
my very favourite set at the moment!
I can't begin to tell you the fun I've already had with this set, and though it may be out there somewhere, I haven't come across anything comparable in the stampy world at the moment - this set has so much variety and the possibilites for creative fun are endless!

I stamped the palm tree beach scene once to the left.
I then stamped it slightly lower down on the right. Because this second image left a straight line at the left edge of the silhouette, I colored in a bit of beach going down to the water
with a black marker.
Using post-it-notes I masked the sky at the upper horizon to be able to sponge the water, leaving white space between the pink and the green ocean - this gives the illusion of light reflecting.
I then made a circle using a post-it-note for the sun and sponged the sky colours.
Afterwards I took the negative die-cut of the circle which was cut from the post-it-note and placed it over the uninked circle of the sun. This allowed me to sponge pink in the circle for the sun.
The sentiment is from another absolutely fantastic set, Be Encouraged.
This is another set I've only had for a few weeks but have already used time and time again - each sentiment highlights God's faithfulness and love, and a card couldn't carry a more precious message, other than Scripture itself!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
