Friday Focus: Serene Silhouette Samples

Friday Focus is a little late this week because I was on a field trip with my son's class yesterday.  Our focus is on the Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set.  On Tuesday I posted a card about using twine that also used this stamp set.

This card used a masking technique that I just love.  I made a mask with the Apothecary Accents Framelit and then sponged inside with So Saffron.  Then I sponged the edges with Rose Red.  The result gives a sunset effect as a background for the stamp.  The photo corners were hand made with a little creativity.

This card uses the butterfly stamp.  I cut the circle out of the light pink and set the stamped image under it, separating with dimensionals.  Then the DSP and some punched butterflies added the finishing touches.

The final stamp in this set is this wonderful tree stamp.  I stamped the image in Certainly Celery first and then Old Olive next.  This creates a shadow effect that adds dimension to the image without adding bulk to the card.  The embossed background cardstock helps add dimension, as well.  Which stamp is your favorite?
