Serene Silhouette - Brayered Sunset

Here is a brayered sunset I made with the Serene Silhouette stamp set from Stampin' Up!  The sunset on this card uses only two colors - Daffodil Delight and Raspberry Ripple. First, I stamped the tree silhouette in Basic Black Craft ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I added a diagonal strip of Daffodil Delight ink using my Brayer. Finally, I added some Raspberry Ripple ink with the brayer, starting off the edge of the cardstock and moving in toward the image.
The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches. I really like this sketch and may play with it again today. With the embossed image as the focal point, I decided to add some embossed texture to the background pieces as well. Both the Basic Gray and Tangerine Tango pieces are stamped repeatedly in VersaMark with an image from Delicate Doilies stamp set and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. For the banner tab, I punched a 3/4" Circle from the Basic Gray mat, from under the main image area.
