Sunset Silhouette

Today's card is a simple card made with very few ingredients and no tools or dies except your paper cutter, adhesive and a sponge. The silhouette image was stamped on Whisper White card stock in Soft Suede ink. The sunset was acheived using only two colors of ink, Daffodil Delight and Pretty in Pink, which were subtly blended using a sponge. Then, a little more Soft Suede was sponged on the edges to give a softened look. This is a fun technique to try. You may want to practice on a piece of scrap paper to be sure you are achieving the desired effect.
