Shades of Sunset

To kick off the Flourishes August release of 4 new sets of stamps, they are having a challenge called "Shades of Sunset:


Beautiful colors, who wouldn't be inspired?  I don't have very many Flourishes stamps; most of mine are flowers and so I  thought I'd use this beautiful damask stripe from the Strips and Stripes set and some distress inks to make my own kind of sunset:


supplies: white cardstock, Flourishes Strips and Stripes, dusty concord, worn lipstick, spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress inks, sentiment from the Lenten Rose set, Hero Arts S5316 Silhouette Grasses, versafine onyx black ink, clear embossing powder

I have always loved this "Be still and know that I am God" quote; it has given me great comfort, and I thought it was appropriate for this card.

  3. Lin, this is just gorgeous! Oh, my! I really thought that was designer paper and was wondering what collection it was in all those different colors. Sheesh! You'd think I'd recognize one of Flourishes stamps. This is sooooo beautiful. Love the silhouette. What a wonderful entry for the challenge!
